Explanation

The same-direction trigger colon and the clues tortuous and confound require that the blank mean something like complex. None of banal, elegiac, mundane, or panegyric means complex, so eliminate choices (A), (C), (D), and (E). Recondite does mean complex, so select choice (B).

Hence option B is correct!
