Explanation

The trigger word unlike and the clue drawn with rich detail require that the second blank means lacking detail. Dynamic and fractious do not mean lacking detail, and can be eliminated. Unbedizened means unadorned and is a good fit for this blank.

For the first blank, the clue years before the novel was complete and the information later on indicate that the first blank means incomplete. Parochial means narrow-minded and fallow means inactive, so both can be eliminated. Nascent means coming into existence and is the best choice for the first blank.

Hence options C and F is correct!
