Since this question is a two-parter, we can start by lifting one side of the barbell before
we start worrying about the other.
In the first blank, we're looking for a word that helps us communicate the idea that
the strongman earns mad respect for his awesome feats of strength.
Knowing this, we can cross off (A), because there's usually not much risk involved in
getting respect. Unless you demand it.
(C) can go as well. "Ignores" respect just doesn't make any sense.
People don't necessarily "accept" respect from others, so cross (B) out as well.
All right, we've given all we can to blank number one.
Now it's time to finish the heavy lifting with blank number two.
(D) doesn't work at all. Having "humanity" or being a kind and understanding person might
be respectable, but it doesn't have much to do with lifting big, heavy things.
Looks like it's time to take a closer look at (E).
Yeah, seems the heavy lifting is done.
"Derive" is a synonym for "gain" and "prowess" describes skill, so (E) is our best choice.
(E) for "Everything is relative."
