Explanation

The clue in this short sentence is the word eloquent, which you need to flip because of the “rather than.”

Unscrupulous and inane are negative but don’t really relate to speech. Voluble doesn’t have any negative connotations. Glib, meaning “fluent and talkative, but insincere and shallow,” fits perfectly.

Glib.
