Answer

B and D

Answer option A is incorrect because of repetition in the sentence. E and C are incorrect as they do not have any synonyms in the given sentence. Therefore, B and D are the correct answers as they imply the same meaning when placed in the blank.

Therefore, options A, B and D are all incorrect. 'Terms' and 'conditions' will complete the meaning of the sentence when placed in the blank and therefore, C and E are the correct answers.
