Edited the question

Use the table to set up a one or two or three blanks. Much better and mimic the real test

That is the screen of the code

The nuclear power was welcoming out side inspection....the nearest choice is 'amenable to'

And second blank is about nuclear power wanting press to 'publicize' any perceived risk to nearby townships.

@rapsjade - Can you explain how does " post any pictures it deemed incriminating" fit into the sentence context if the answer is B,D.

The bold part means - that the nuclear plant posted pictures that will implicate someone of a crime.
Is my interpretation correct?

I think I got it.
Nuclear plant posted pictures which it deemed incriminating online to tell people (publicize) about the wrongful practices near the plant.

Let's start by eliminating answer choices, since the right answer isn't likely to pop out on such a subtle question. For the first blank, we can get rid of (A) because of the clue "even courting...media". This shows that the plant was not at all suspicious of inspections, it actually invited the media. But why would it do such a thing, if it had something to hide? The thing is the clue "consummate ability" shows us that it was very good at doing something--specifically, to risky practices. It wouldn't want to publicize these practices (it would likely be shut down). Yet, if it is going to invite journalists to take pictures, it has to be pretty good at hiding (cloaking) anything that might be perceived as risky.

The answer would be cloak...
They are ready to show their entire set up . So how do they handle the medias response to the practices that may be perceived as harmful to neighboring areas . That means they must be confident to hide these practices and NOT publicize ofcourse.

so E is correct
