Explanation

The tricky part of this sentence is to unlock the very first word, the others will come as consequence.

Actually, the book is quite good and exposes the argument in a bit crisscross way. As such, B in the best for the first blank. However, the book has some weakness: lacks organization and undercut the possibility for being in a consistent manner.

for this blank, we can also go with option F (uniformity) since in the very next line it states that:

Hi,

sorry, but even though your reasoning may be understandable, the answer must be only one. And here only the word organization fits the bill.

hej guys,

for the last blank.

I went with exaggerate.

Now the reasoning that I took behind that choice that it shows that these leaps exaggerate the competencies of an individual in...as it goes

I do get why undercut works, would like to hear from someone a bit more proficient within GRE why the above mentioned logic is flawed.

Happy to give you help

This book's strengths are the author's breadth of knowledge and the blending of ideas and findings from many disciplines, including history, the arts and the sciences. Ideas from diverse perspectives are (i) ________ to provide a historical and cross-cultural understanding.

So far so good. The book is awesome and the author via the book itself is able to make a fusion of different concepts or ideas from different domains. B is the blank. Hands down

But

A shift in the argument. Counter word. We need to address the flip of the issue.

a weakness

here we go. A flaw in the book

of the book is its (ii) _________ : sometimes there are leaps from one domain to another

stop it and think. The book is awesome BUT its weak point is maybe it gathers too much information from all over the places. Therefore, its problem is the organization

that (iii) _______ the reader's ability to synthesize a coherent view of our current understanding of this subject.

From the sentence above and the lack of book's organization, clearly the 3 blanks is that the book as a weak point is its manner to UNDERCUT the possibility by the readers to synthesize the concepts the book fuses because lack of organization. So we do not have a clear overall view.

Hope this helps

Click the dots of the chrome browser (the options) and click on "request desktop view"

The page will be reloaded and you see this as you see on your browser desktop/computer

Click on kudo on the left: like you were with your mouse in front of your computer

Simple enough

If the author's using information from various eclectic domains and the books strength is the the depth and breadth of knowledge it covers then interwoven makes perfect sense. Once this is done, the rest follows. No other shift in the sentence.
