    Agile means quick and graceful in physical movement, suggesting that someone is nimble and able to move easily and swiftly.

    Explanation
    The word "inclination" refers to a tendency or preference towards something. It implies a natural leaning or liking for a particular action or choice. In this context, "inciteful," "incredulous," and "incredited" do not convey the same meaning as "inclination." Therefore, "inclination" is the correct answer as it aligns with the given definition.
