Explanation

The behavior being described is used to disparage the movement, so it must be inappropriate behavior. Reticent means reserved or shy, so choice (C) is incorrect. Garrulous means talkative and cogent means convincing, but there are no clues to support these choices.

Capricious is often used with a negative connotation and means impulsive or unpredictable. Debauched and profligate both mean disregarding social or moral correctness, which makes them the two best answers that produce equivalent, appropriate sentences.

Hence options B and D are correct!
