Explanation

Since the fascination with celebrities and the innovations of the electronic age may inspire something to occur, you need a word that means about to happen. Flagging and attenuating mean weakening, so those words go in the opposite direction from the blank. Calumniating means slandering; while the new paparazzi may indeed be engaging in slander, that’s not what the blank is talking about. Deliquescing means becoming liquid, and a trend can’t do that.

Looming and impending both mean about to happen, so those words are good fits for the blank.

Hence options A and F are correct!
