Explanation

All of the clues in the sentence are about being scared, so tremulous matches best in the first blank. You know that the child finds diving “even more frightening” than water in general, so chary of (suspicious or slightly scared of), a less extreme version of frightening, fits in the second blank.

Tremulous, chary of.
