(Transparent, penetrate) seems to be the right one
pliant =>

easily influenced or directed; yielding.

"the tsar had replaced him with a more pliant successor"

yeild =>

give way to arguments, demands, or pressure.

"the Western powers now yielded when they should have resisted"

Why not these 2 ?
