Explanation

anomalies, daunting, and authoritative

For the first blank, recycle the clue differences. Of the choices, only anomalies means differences.

The second blank relates how these differences affect the task of literary scholars, so a word like difficult or challenging would make sense. Of the choices, only daunting makes sense.

The third blank describes the type of texts that such differences would make so challenging, so a word that means genuine or authentic would make sense. Of the choices, authoritative is the best fit.


Hence option B, E and I are correct!

The question feels incomplete; as if something should come after authoritative.
