Explanation

glut and belied

The sentence states that sequels and remakes are derivative, and thus the article would be decrying their existence. Eliminate dearth, which means scarcity. Also eliminate quality as too neutral a word. Glut means overabundance and correctly reflects the clue word flooding.

Next, a large quantity of sequels decades ago would disprove the claim at the end of the sentence. Eliminate underscored and predicted because neither one is supported. Belied means disproved, making glut and belied the final answers.

Hence option C and E is correct!
