    Explanation
    Enfeeble means to weaken or make someone or something feeble or less strong. It is the most appropriate word among the given options as it is synonymous with debilitate, which means to make someone or something weak. Obdurate means stubborn or resistant to change, Exalt means to praise or glorify, and Affable means friendly or easy to approach.

    Refractory means stubborn or resistant to control or authority. This word is the best fit for the given list of options as it is the only word that conveys a sense of resistance or defiance. Intractable and refractory have similar meanings, but refractory is a more precise and specific choice. Intervene means to come between or mediate, illicit means illegal or forbidden, and quaint means charmingly old-fashioned. None of these words convey the same sense of resistance or defiance as refractory.
