    I spent a night at the airport in _________________ when my flight was cancelled.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tokyo, tokyo". This is because the sentence suggests that the speaker spent a night at the airport when their flight was cancelled. Since "Tokyo" is a proper noun and the name of a city, it makes sense that the speaker is referring to spending a night at the airport in Tokyo, which is a common occurrence for travelers when flights are cancelled. The repetition of "tokyo" with a lowercase "t" is likely a typographical error and does not affect the meaning of the sentence.
