Explanation

A story about Einstein not uttering a sentence in five years would emphasize his image as a quiet scholar. Both loquacious and garrulous are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (F).

Neither consummate, which means perfect, nor judicious, which means showing good judgment, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate
choices (B) and (D). Both reticent and laconic can mean using few words, so choices (C) and (E) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options C and E is correct!
