Explanation

The clue to the second blank, sophisticated weaponry that could easily overpower, suggests a word that means less sophisticated. Intricate and perilous do not pertain to being less sophisticated and can be eliminated, leaving rudimentary as the correct answer.

The northern nations could easily overpower the southern nations, and so they had an upper hand. Advantage is the only choice that means upper hand and is correct.

Hence options B and F are correct!
