Explanation

Given the lengthy explanation of the club’s history, the elderly male member’s suggestion was “backwards,” or “hopelessly old-fashioned.” Only regressive matches.

In the second blank, you want something that reflects the idea play bridge and drink tea without having to worry about serious issues. Auxiliary has this sense of “secondary” or “on the side.”

Regressive, auxiliary.

why will someone both annoyed and amused with a rustic or prudish suggestion? that's why regressive would be in the first blank.
