Solution

laudatory
The meaning of the ‘pejorative’ is ‘derogatory/criticize so the opposite of ‘pejorative’ is ‘laudatory/praising’. The clue here is 'rather' as after this word mostly negative words are used so 'pejorative' will also have a negative connotation and opposite to this word should have a positive connotation. The only positive word here is 'laudatory'. 'predictive' has neutral connotation i.e. its meaning is 'pertaining to prediction/foretelling'.
