B incapabilities and projections, or empathizing for Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C facts and circumstances, and sympathizing with Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D scientific and moral, or confronting behind Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
E No correction required Correct Answer Incorrect Answer


We sympathize with and not for someone. Also, when BETWEEN is used, AND is used, not OR to separate the two options. For the first phrase, facts and circumstances fits well. Plots and hindrances are created and such creations would not put anyone in a situation that he/she torn between blaming and sympathizing. The spot on facts and true incidents would only put anyone in such a situation.
