    • C.

      best

    Correct Answer
    C. best
    Explanation
    The word "best" is the correct answer because it is the superlative form of the adjective "good." In the given sentence, the speaker is comparing the song on their MP3 player to others and stating that it is the highest in quality or most excellent.
