Correct Answer: E 🗳️
The word exposed', and the phrase 'Indiscriminate use of pesticides', imply (hat the first missing word must be one which stands for something bad that is associated with the use of pesticides.

Since the phrase'deaths of the Indiscriminate use of pesticides' does not make sense, the choice deaths' can also be ruled out leaving hazards' (meaning 'risks') and dangers as the only possible choices (or the first missing word. If the pair 'hazards., defused' is chosen, the sentence would mean that the exposure of the hazards of using pesticides defused (or weakened. the modern environmental movement, which is illogical. The pair dangers., inspired" completes a cogent and logical sentence.
