...both of which describe the way our speaker, er, speaks rather than explaining what she's
actually talking about. "Inflict" means to cause something unpleasant
to happen to someone. Sure, the lecturer might've done this with her lecture...
But we have a feeling that's not what this sentence is going for.
The speaker's audience would probably be confused and bored if her context "followed"

When you stick the prefix "pre" on a word, it means the word is referencing something
that comes before something else.
This gives us a hint that "prefaced" means a preliminary statement that gives background
on what's to come.
Sounds like (D) is just what we're looking for.
We hope any lectures in your future look like this.
