Ever a demanding reader of the fiction of others, the novelist Chase was likewise often the object of _________ analyses by his contemporaries.

A) exacting
B) copious
C) respectful
D) acerbic
E) scathing
F) meticulous

The novelist Chase is described as a demanding reader and even his contemporaries are like him, demanding. So we need answer choices matching demanding. Answer choice A, exacting (demanding) and F, meticulous (attention to detail) form a good pair to fill the blank. Copious (abundant in quantity) does not have a pair nor does the word respectful. Acerbic and scathing (severely critical) are extremely negative for the context of this sentence.
