    Explanation
    The word "fort(e)" is a noun that means a person's strong suit or talent. It is often used in the phrase "one's forte" to describe something that a person excels at or is particularly skilled in. Therefore, "strong" is the correct answer as it is the closest synonym to "forte" in this context. The other options, such as "fat," "breakable," and "dilapidated," do not accurately represent the meaning of "forte."

    Rate this question:
