Explanation

The first blank describes the state of the city’s public schools; since the author is seeking remedies, something like bad would make sense in the blank. Of the choices, only execrable means bad.

The second sentence lists elements that will play a vital role in the remedy, but the trigger while suggests more needs to be done; of the choices for the second blank, only an error to ignore allows this meaning.

The final sentence is an example to reinforce this idea, and the blank describes what talented teachers would do to negative factors; of the choices, only mitigate the effects makes sense.

Hence option A, D and H are correct
