Explanation

The clues are the same for the second and third blanks, so start there. The new bridge was an improvement in highway safety, so the old bridge must have been a danger; of the choices, only precariously makes sense in the second blank, and only perilous makes sense in the third.

The first blank describes the improvement; the old bride had been narrow, and the new one was relatively expansive, so a word that means big would make sense. Of the choices, only prodigious means big.

Hence options A, F and I is correct!
