    C. Bask
    Explanation
    The word "bask" best depicts the picture because it means to enjoy warmth and relaxation, often in the sun. This word suggests a sense of comfort and contentment, which is likely portrayed in the picture. "Instill" means to introduce or teach something, "resolute" means determined or unwavering, and "abashed" means embarrassed or ashamed. These words do not align with the idea of enjoying warmth and relaxation, so they are not the best choices for depicting the picture.

The other three words - belittle, repercussion, and exotic - do not convey the same meaning and are not relevant to describing a picture with a defect.

    • A.

      True
