Explanation

The logic is hard to follow, so you need a word for the blank that means confusing or convoluted. Both labyrinthine and byzantine mean twisting and turning like a maze, so keep choices (C) and (E).

Rhetorical means using a strong, formal writing style, so eliminate choice (A). Libertine and unscrupulous are roughly synonymous, and both mean having lax moral standards, so eliminate choices (B) and (D). Decorous means dignified or proper, so eliminate choice (F).

Hence options C and E are correct!
