      B. wanted

    • C.

    • E.

      E. gave

    Correct Answer
    A. A. was
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. "was". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and requires a past tense verb to match the subject "Armando". "Was" is the past tense form of the verb "to be" and is used to indicate that Armando was present in the museum at the time of the robbery.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. wanted
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. wanted. This answer is correct because it fits logically with the sentence structure and meaning. The sentence is talking about someone who was offered security by the police, but they did not want to be the witness.

The other options do not fit the sentence structure or the meaning conveyed by the word "magical".

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The word "wished" suggests that Dharigra had a desire or hope to encounter a gigantic man on the way to the jungle. This implies that Dharigra did not actually meet or lose the man, nor did he keep or march with him. Therefore, "wished" is the most appropriate answer in this context.

    E. E. gave
    Explanation
    The correct answer is E. gave. The sentence suggests that the speaker had given someone a chance in the past, and this was the last time they did so. The verb "gave" matches the context and provides a clear meaning to the sentence. The other options (A. was, B. wanted, C. laid, D. found) do not fit grammatically or contextually.
