Why not C, D, H. Juvenile is "immature" and the sentence has the hook "they continue to evolve"

The movie script is boring. However, the special effect makes the film interesting and they keep up interested in the story, otherwise pretty dull.

Ask for further assistance if you do need.

I believe there is a spelling mistake in the question which created ambiguity in answering it?

juvenile exhausted remain unchanged

We know from the sentence that the special effects, unlike the story, continue to evolve. Therefore my own word for the second blank is unevolving. Only exhausted can produce a similar meaning and so F is the correct choice for the second blank. Clearly if the special effects are evolving, then they must be exciting and definitely not predictable or juvenile. There is nothing to suggest juvenile, though it may be the personal opinion of some, and also juvenile has a negative connotation that is not implied by the paragraph.Since the special effects are exciting, and unfamiliar (unlike the story which would be awfully unfamiliar) they would hold us in thrall.

for a non-native English speaker like me, I also get confused between B and C. After I look up the examples of juvenile from the Internet, I am sure that the answer is B because the sentence context has nothing to do with the youths, or the next generations.

hope it helps
