Answers: (B), (D)

The keywords are 'swarm', 'incessant whir.' The idea is that the reporters are surrounding the celebrity aggressively, the sound of their cameras adding to the assault.

(B) harried means harassed
(C) mollified means soothed
(D) besieged means to be surrounded and harassed
(E) disbarred means to be excluded
(F) feted means to be celebrated
