1 - I said A because barriers stop things, and then it said BUT which changed the sentence around, and when it says has weakened these " " the only thing it could of weakened is the barriers which are also defenses.
2- I wasnt sure b/w D or E this was tricky. I understood the first blank because they are not licensed for being dogmatic, they are not strict on something, they are open to more than 1 interpertation. "should not automatically reject" was my clue.
3- A because they can be "Devoid" of love because its also an economic advantage. So most of the time its arranged. Also a tricky one
4- I was down to 2 choices so i dunno if im right i said E because a Judgemental, careful biographer will be fair, just, or "equitable", and not the 2 extremes of either indictment (bad) and eulogy (good)
5- E Having propensity is inclided to do something, or propensity is by defintion inclided to do something, having repugnance is by defintion being repelled to do it.
I hope this helped

Just to confirm Aka's answers, 2 is indeed D, and 4 is equitable representation and ..eulogy.
