Explanation

The etymology of “alpha” is described as “obscure,” and the word while implies that the etymology of “omega” will be “not obscure.” Both transparent and overt carry this meaning.

Complicated and abstruse are the opposite of what you want, and neither erudite nor scholarly are particularly relevant to the meaning
of the sentence.

Hence transparent, overt are best fit!
