Explanation

With the opposite-direction trigger though, and the clue that Dan wanted honest criticism, the blank can mean something like yes-men. None of pedants, benefactors, adversaries, or mavericks means yes-men, so eliminate choices (B), (C), (D), and (E). Sycophants means yes-men, so select choice (A).

Hence option A is corrrect!
