Explanation

The opposite-direction trigger while and the opposite-direction time trigger after the incident, along with the clue answered him truthfully require that the second blank mean something like mislead. None of vituperate, illuminate, covet, or desiccate mean mislead, so eliminate choices (A), (C), (D), and (E). Obfuscate does mean mislead, so select choice (B).

Hence options B is correct!
