Explanation

The sentence talks about books that make money from publishing other people’s disasters. This is often what profiteering means. For the second blank, the clue helping us to appreciate the humanity of people requires a word meaning something like helpful. Specious and sedulous do not mean helpful, but salutary does. Thus, select profiteering and salutary.

Hence options C and D is correct!
