    ‘Vigilantes’ refers to members of a self-appointed group of citizens who undertake law enforcement in their community without legal authority. Therefore, it’s the most appropriate word for the first blank.
    ‘anti-heroes’ refer to central character(s) in a story, film, or drama who lack conventional heroic attributes.
    ‘Groups’ is too general.
    ‘Villains’ who are deliberate scoundrels or criminals, is also too general a word.

    For the second blank, ‘tensions’, risks’ and ‘dangers’ are all equally valid options. Therefore, the key to cracking this question is to know the accurate answer to the first blank.
    ‘Slippages’ would be inappropriate. It refers to the action or process of slipping or subsiding, or a failure to meet a standard or deadline.
