Explanation

This is a very tough question. Often the best strategy is to read very carefully the entire sentence, trying to catch the meaning or what's going on: a shift, the tone of the sentence and so on.

At the same time is fundamental to look always to the answer choices: they come in handy. For the second blank E and F are suddenly out, we have D.

Therefore, in the first blank we do need a matching word, in the same fashion or meaning.D is negative, actually, it means: deprecatory. B is the best in this scenario.

Here one should only know the definition of "pejorative," which I did not encounter unfortunately.
