What is the correct answer?


The teacher_____the boys comic which he was reading during the Mathematics period.

A. possessed

B. procured

C. abandoned

D. seized

Correct Answer :

D. seized

The comic: (comics book) changes hands - it goes from the boy to the teacher. Only (b), (c) and (d) give this sense of change of hands. Of these, seized is the most appropriate. If someone in authority (here the teacher) seizes your property (here the boys comic), they take it from you, often by force. Of course, no boy would willingly part with his comic
