    Explanation
    Grover solved the puzzle of who Aunty Em was when he recognized his uncle. This suggests that Grover was able to identify Aunty Em by recognizing his uncle, possibly through some familiar physical features or mannerisms. The other options mentioned, such as hearing the snakes, being told by Annabeth, or noticing the absence of a camera, do not provide any indication of when Grover actually solved the puzzle.

In the novel "Percy Jackson and the Olympians," Percy is a demigod who embarks on various quests to defeat mythical creatures. In one of these quests, Percy encounters Medusa and ultimately defeats her by using a reflective shield to avoid her gaze and then decapitating her. Therefore, Percy is the one responsible for killing Medusa.

In the story, her head retained its power, even after her death, as it could turn anyone who looked at it into stone. Therefore, her head was the significant object that remained after her defeat.
