    • A.

      Tick-Tock

      Battery

      Time

    • D.

      Clock

    Correct Answer
    A. Tick-Tock
    Explanation
    The author uses the words "tick-tock" to describe the watch, which implies that it has hands that move in a ticking and tocking motion. This distinguishes it from a digital watch, which typically displays the time using numbers. The other words "battery," "time," and "clock" are not specific to a watch with hands and could apply to both types of watches.
