Suggested Answer: C 🗳️
One example of the wide range of description in the essays referred to in the given sentence is mentioned as 'from the fanciful to the matter-of-fact'. Since these are exact opposites, the other two phrases should also represent exact opposites. So, the first missing must be the opposite of the word fatuous' (meaning 'silly'), and the second missing word must be the opposite of the word 'objective' (meaning 'unemotional'). Among the given choices, it is the pair 'insightful/ and
'impressionistic' which are the opposites of 'fatuous' and 'subjective' respectively. So, C is the answer.
