Answer

B and E

Out of all the given answer options, the words, 'auspices' and 'aegis' are the only two words that carry the same meaning and both of them fit in well with the meaning being conveyed by the remaining sentence. Therefore, B and E are the correct answers.

Answer

C and D

The issue under discussion is being described by two words; 'complex' and the missing word. This implies that B is clearly incorrect as the issue cannot be complex and facile at the same time. Out of the remaining options, C and D are the only two words that mean the same and therefore, C and D are the correct answers.
