Explanation

The word "Although" is a crucial signpost here. The work contains some pioneering ideas, but apparently it is not overall a pioneering work. Thus the two words that could fill the blank appropriately are "original" and "innovative." Note that "orthodox" and "conventional" are two words that are very similar in meaning, but neither one completes the sentence sensibly.

Thus the correct answer is Choice C (original) and Choice F (innovative).

If the sentence containing "Although" denotes positive, the other sentence will be negative. Here, although contains positive-some pioneering ideas, so, the other sentence will be negative or different direction. But the word “hardly” assimilates the same direction with first sentence. If there is no “Hardly” in the second sentence, our result will be A and E.
