    • A.

      France during World War I

    • B.

      Ireland during the first world war

    • C.

      England during World War II

    • D.

      The U.S. during World War II

    Correct Answer
    C. England during World War II
    Explanation
    The correct answer is England during World War II. This can be inferred from the information given in the question, where it states that the story was set in a specific time period. Since the options provided are different time periods during different wars, we can eliminate the options of France during World War I and Ireland during the first world war. The U.S. during World War II can also be eliminated as it is not mentioned in the question. Therefore, the only remaining option is England during World War II, making it the correct answer.
