Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.
But Rounak did feel ______ guilty when he heard his mother calling.
Correct Answer : c ) a littleExplanation :
The given sentence states that Rounak felt a bit guilty when his mother called him. This means there was some amount of guilt bothering him.
‘Few’ is used for countable nouns and ‘guilt’ is an uncountable noun subject. So, it cannot be used.
‘More’ does not fit in grammatically.
‘The little’ is used to refer to all the amount of guilt left. But the context doesn’t state so.
‘A little’ means some, so it will impart the meaning as some guilt.
Hence, (C) is the correct answer.
