The labor union and the company's management, despite their long history of unfailingly acerbic disagreement on nearly every issue, have nevertheless reached an unexpectedly ______, albeit still tentative, agreement on next year's contract.

A. swift
B. onerous
C. hesitant
D. reluctant
E. conclusive

Is the answer is E?
I would pick A- swift.
Conclusive and tentative would contradict one another.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Oh Thank you. But I don't get completely how it can't be conclusive. There is a word albeit in between conclusive and tentative, so they can be contradicting. Isn't it?
Oh ok. I'm getting it. If it is conclusive, then it can't be said, it is still tentative. Fine. Thank you!
