44. The word 'wraps' fits into the first blank most appropriately. If something is .kept under wraps it meansil is being kept secret until sometime in the future. The word wraps is found only in choices 1 and 3. Hence we consider only 1 and 3. Choice 1 can be eliminated because the word 'secrecy' does not fit into the 2nd blank. The word 'discretlon' Is apt here, The expresslon 'discretion' is the better part of valour means you should avold danger and not lake unnecessary risks.
