Answer: Option C

Elaborated and stated are similar and would be redundant. Thus, option A is incorrect.

Rudely is absurd while debatable is an adjective and we need an adverb in the blank.
Only succinctly fits right in. This means concise and here refers to the chief economic advisor
summarizing his remarks.
