So Mr. Smith is a highly trained, expert librarian. Awesome. We wonder where you go to become one of THOSE?
Librarian boot camp?
Anyway, we know that the first word needs a positive connotation that jibes with Mr.
Smith's extensive training.
We can therefore eliminate (D) and (E) right off the bat. Neither "questionable" nor
"inconsistent" have positive connotations.
The rest of our first blank choices are plausible, so we'll move on to blank number two.
Despite his training, Mr. Smith's compadres in the library aren't all that impressed with him.
So for the second blank, we know we're looking for a negative sounding word to go along with "tardiness."
"Efficiency" is a good thing, and "accomplishments"
are pretty sweet too, therefore (B) and (C) are both off the list.
(A) is the correct answer, because no matter how well trained you are, being "unreliable"
isn't usually a good thing...
OK, it's never a good thing.
