Explanation


Any of the offered words could possibly describe a conductor’s choice of tempo. However, the phrase “without necessary relation to what had gone before” is presented as
an elaboration on the word in the blank. Among the answer choices, only “arbitrary” and “capricious” could be elaborated that way; none of the other choices would be
explained by the final phrase.
Thus, the correct answer is arbitrary (Choice A) and capricious (Choice B).
