Explanation

The clues here are very obvious: the man looks even older than his actual age of 70, and as though he had endured 40 years in the desert. Desiccated means “dried out,” and wizened means “old and withered.”

Note trap answer arid, which means “dry” — this is a good word to describe a desert, but cannot describe a person.

Hence options desiccated, wizened are best fit!
