Explanation

The clown invokes laughter and enjoyment, so he must represent a happy character. Ace and crackerjack are synonyms that refer to someone with a certain talent, which may be true of the clown, but these answers are not supported by the clues.

Artful may sound like an appropriate answer, but, in addition to meaning skilled, it can mean sly or crafty. None of these are the right definitions. Surly has the opposite connotation of happy, so the correct answers are choices (C) and (E), which both mean friendly or pleasant.

Hence options C and F are correct!
