1. The first blank should reflect the opposite of "bias", which is done only by "disinterested".
2. The second blank is tricky. One might choose "errors"; however, bias need not be errors. They are human constructions. "Imperatives" does not fit here.

In the old GRE book, the options were:

A) disinterested ... constructions
B) callous ... errors
C) verifiable ... prejudices
D) convincing ... imperatives
E) unassailable... fantasies

Can someone explain why C is wrong here? The "disinterestedness" is already mentioned as "scientific objectivity". Also in the second sentence, presumed neutrality is eventually turned out to be bias, so human prejudices can be filled here as well, in my opinion.

Focus on "instead" in the sentence.
