The key word in this sentence, which is indeed is very short and without so many clues such as in a long statement, is the word contention AND the overall unfolding of the sentence.

Now, contention means quarrel or debate. So the theory of a unified field of study is not totally good or correct, maybe is wrong totally and this is confirmed by the sentence as a whole.

So the meaning is this: maybe X (the theory) is good but at a closer look is wrong

As such, for the first blank unbiased is suddenly out. A contains in it the root word doubt so I do not think is good or that here we do have some doubt or whatever it means. B must be the answer even though I do not know the exact meaning of it.

At a closer look, the theory is wrong. A such, for the second blank E and F are positive words but we do need something that is negative. D must be the answer.

For the third blank H and I are out for the logic above. G is left.

Hope is clear now.

Regards
