License for two main reasons: first off, because with POE is the only word that fits the bill. Secondly,

The laws of logic, in her opinion, (ii)__________her proclamation that “existence exists,” which is very much like saying that the law of thermodynamics is hot.

License give her the authority to proclaim that “existence exists.

Hope this helps. Ask if ay is unclear to you.

Warrant means permission. authorization or a legal document.

Epigram is a remark expressing an idea.

Warrant is completely out of scope

I hope now is more clear.

For what it is worth I certainly did not know the answer to this question. I find that first sentence very difficult to comprehend and would find myself guessing at this one!

So anyone who struggled with this know that I am right there with you. I have never heard such a turn of phrase in English "She claims it is possible to deduce matters of fact from logic and, with just as little epigram, claims to derive ethical and economic truth as well."

If you missed this one please do not worry too much about it!

The word epigram has a literary connotation and it is the wrong word to put there. With just as little "fallacy" actually sounds good, because the kind of claims she makes does not seem very sensible or acceptable. How does one deduce matters of fact from logic? It seems to imply the exercise is in-sensible.

But warrant is also okay there, though the phrase "with just as little warrant, aims to derive..." sounds weird.

Also, deduce, logic and fallacy are all terms from logic and so my first preference is fallacy, and then warrant and last would be epigram.
