    Correct Answer
    A. There

    Correct Answer
    B. Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Their" because it is the possessive form of the pronoun "they". In this sentence, the subject "they" is indicating that someone lost their cat. "There" is used to indicate a location, "their" shows possession, and "they're" is a contraction of "they are" which does not fit in this context.

    Correct Answer
    C. They're
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They're". In this sentence, the speaker expresses surprise and disbelief that a certain group of people is not on the road yet. "They're" is the contraction of "they are", which indicates that the speaker expected the group to be present at the current time.
