Explanation

For the first blank, the clues difference and has become unimportant require something like difference between. Similarity of and usefulness of do not mean difference between;distinction between does.

For the second blank, the opposite-direction trigger but and the clue difference require something like similar. Statistically and differentially do not mean similar, but interchangeably does. Select distinction between and interchangeably.

Hence option A and E are correct!

The first blank is looking for something synonymous with "difference." This should obviously be "distinction." The second blank is looking for something that means the two are used without distinction which is "interchangeably."

difference == (i) blank
but == (ii) blank --->transition word which contradicts first statement.
