Explanation

Marian does not comment on her grandmother’s hat out of respect, which means she dislikes the hat. You need a word that means ugly or in poor taste. Iconoclastic and heretical both mean going against established beliefs. This is too strong and does not describe a hat, so
eliminate choices (A) and (F).

Imperious and haughty both mean arrogant, so eliminate choices (B) and (C). Gaudy and garish both mean showy and in poor taste, and can be used to describe clothing. Choices (D) and (E) are both correct.

Hence options D and E are correct!
