Explanation

The semicolon trigger tells you the two parts of the sentence agree; since the blank is describing the road, you need a word that means twisted. Both abbreviated and fleeting are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (C).

Neither invigorating, which means energizing, nor immense, which means huge, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (B) and (D). Both serpentine and tortuous can mean twisted, so choices (E) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Serpentine and tortuous both indicate towards complex and twisted road.Thus, they fit the blank perfectly.
