The sentence tells us that the word is not so much important in conversation as compared to the change in tone of the voice. So Inflexion which means modulation of pitch is a correct answer. Pitch is a trap word. It simply means a high pitch or low pitch without modulation. Hence for the second blank utilized makes sense because words actually used does not matter.
