    An ogre is defined as a brute, a large monster, or a frightful giant. This means that an ogre is a creature that is typically depicted as being extremely large, powerful, and often terrifying.

    The word "mesmerize" means to captivate or fascinate someone completely. It is often used to describe the act of hypnotizing or entrancing someone. The other words listed, such as "ogre," "bandy," and "dastardly," do not have the same meaning or association with hypnotism. Therefore, "mesmerize" is the correct answer.

    Bandy means to exchange words or to discuss casually. It is often used to describe a conversation or discussion where ideas or opinions are shared between two or more people. This word implies a back-and-forth exchange of words, indicating a casual or informal conversation rather than a formal or serious discussion.

    Efface is a verb that means to erase or remove something, making it the synonym of "erase." In this context, the question is asking for a synonym of the verb provided, and efface fits the criteria. Bandy, charisma, and ogre are unrelated words and do not have the same meaning as erase or efface.
