A and F seems synonym. So these may be the answer. Then why correct answer is A and B

Look at the key word here: the last.

Which means he is a risk taker at a very high level. He is a maverick: who has unorthodox ideas.

Rebel and iconoclast are synonyms. To be picky, the right word should be iconoclastic and NOT iconoclast.

You need a word such rebel and akin.

Heretic is out of scope and out of context.
