The sentence suggests a contrast between the boss's demeanor during the initial interview and their actual behavior on the job, which turned out to be different and possibly unsettling for the young hire. The word that best fits the blank should convey a sense of unexpected or unpleasant behavior.

Given the context, "draconian" (meaning excessively harsh or severe) and "disconcerting" (meaning causing feelings of anxiety or confusion) both fit the context well.

So, the correct answer is:

Blank (i): (A) draconian
