Answers: (B), (E)

’Popularization’ implies making that which is abstruse, or difficult to understand, easy to understand. (B) pellucid means clear and easy to understand. In the second blank we have an example of the abstruse work that Voltaire made ‘digestible.’ (E) practically inscrutable, meaning almost unfathomable, matches up best
