Explanation

The important clues in this sentence are the words cloudy and semi-transparent, both of which describe the inner workings of the jellyfish. Choice (A) could be tempting because a jellyfish tentacle could definitely be caustic, but there’s no context for it.

Eliminate it. You can eliminate choice (E) for the same reason. It seems logical, but isn’t actually supported by the text. Choice (C) is connected to the sentence because jellyfish are natatory creatures, but the blank is specifically describing the appearance of tentacles, not the jellyfish as a whole. Choice (B) has nothing to do with the sentence. Choices (D) and (F) both mean loose, flowing, or seethrough,
which is what you’re looking for.

Hence options D and F are correct!
