Explanation

The two blanks contrast “lassitude and torpor” because of the pivot word whereas.

Additionally, the word incite indicates that the blanks will contain words that are active rather than passive. Incorrect choices apathy and drowsiness are somewhat similar to “lassitude and torpor” and are therefore the opposite of what you want.

Convulsions, retching.
