Explanation

The clue in this sentence is filled the air with tension. Both ambience and atmosphere refer to the environment of a place or situation. All of the wrong answer choices are words that may be associated with a gala, but they do not fit this clue. Choice (B) may seem close, but the rest of the sentence does not tell you what the party-goers were discussing.

Choice (E) may also seem like a good fit, but again, the sentence does not tell you how people were acting. Choice (A) would refer to decorations and choice (F) would refer to an activity.

Hence options C and E are correct!
