Please follow the way to format the two blanks. It is easy and can be performed in easy yet few steps

Take a look here https://greprepclub.com/forum/qv-how-to ... -2362.html

Of course, the cafeteria question was germane (relevant) to the school. Even though the direction added deficient classes the cafeteria was still small and not enough to serve the students..

Hope this helps.

Regards

The issue of cafeteria size can be relevant or irrelevant to the town's school redistricting plans. However, as of now we do not have enough information to fill the first blank.

So we move on to the second sentence and the second blank.

It contrasts poor cafeteria facilities with having "some type" of classrooms. Clearly, since it lacked even basic cafeteria facilities,it should have "very good" classrooms or "too many" of them. The options are superfluous (unnecessarily extra), frangible (breakable) and deficient (insufficient). It cannot be deficient, because we are looking for opposite of deficient. Frangible does not make sense here. So superfluous is the only choice available.

Now since we know that we have an excess of classrooms but lack basic cafeteria facilities, we can be sure that the word for the first blank should be "relevant". The word of choice is therefore germane (relevant). Extraneous means superfluous and is the opposite of what we are looking for. Salubrious means pleasing to our health and makes no sense in this context.
