Explanation

The clues for the first blank indicate that the chairman’s comments made the people even angrier; you can eliminate compassionate and solicitous, because people would not be angered by kind or helpful comments.

Glib is the best choice. For the second blank, you need something like making worse, because you know that the people are even angrier; exacerbating is the best fit.

The third blank describes the situation that was made worse, so it must have already been bad. Of the choices, only parlous, which means perilous, is sufficiently negative.

Hence options B, E and G are correct!

I was a bit confused between Parlous and Inured, can you please explain why is parlous preferred over inured as there is no evidence of people being in danger which is the meaning of parlous. It can be seen that the situation was already worse and Inured means tough and hardened which made a little bit more inclined towards Inured. Please help me in this context.

Thanks!
