Explanation

In this sentence, the key words are “very busy woman,” implying the editor doesn’t have a lot of free time. That means it would be necessary to get right to the most important part of the issue. Conclusion and culmination are a pair, but they mean “the end,” which isn’t quite right.

Pith and gist are a much better match for the blank.

Hence options pith, gist are correct!
