    I ___________________ knocking at Sarah's door but got no reply.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "WAS A LONG TIME, SPENT A LONG TIME, TOOK A LONG TIME." This answer is correct because all three options convey the same meaning of waiting for a long period of time without receiving a response. The use of the past tense verb "was," "spent," and "took" indicate that the action of waiting occurred in the past.
