    The answer is "C".

    A luminary is a person that enlightens, inspires, and influences. The person is notable or prominent in that field. He knows, teaches, represents ETHICS in this sentence.

    Chicanery is cheating, tricking, fooling, a sham, unethical means and methods. 

    The words fit, and the others do not. This is a "fancy" one of advanced English for IQ or a college level exam.
