There is a certain approach that we can follow to solve this kind of question with two fillers. We can call it the First Blank First or Second Blank First approach. As per this approach, we first check for the words for either the first or the second blank, eliminate options that do not fit that blank, and then approach the next blank (second or first) with the options that remain after elimination.
For this question, we follow the First Blank First approach, that is, we check for the words that fit the first blank first and then accordingly proceed to the next blank.
Let us look at the option one by one to reach a conclusion.
The words ‘there’, ‘suitable’, and ‘unavailable’ do not fit contextually. The word ‘available’ fits the first blank contextually and goes with the meaning of the sentence.
Since only one word fits the first blank, we have only one option for the second blank, which is “and”, which also fits the meaning of the sentence.
Hence, (D) is the correct answer.
