Explanation:

Option C is correct because according to the Clean Verbatim Style Guide?

If you’re not sure what is said but you can make a reasonable guess that fits the context, put your guess, followed by a question mark, into brackets: ​ [your text here?] ​. Unlike the other tags, the Guess tag is formatted (i.e., capitalized or not) to reflect your guess. The text within the tag can comprise a single word, like ​[this?] ​, or it may be a short phrase, ​[something like this?]​. The full guess goes into one tag.

She vacationed in [Mongolia?] and [Siberia?] for spring break [last year?].

If you can’t tell if a speaker is saying one thing or another, ​ DO NOT​ put two guesses within the same tag. Decide what is most fitting based on context.

No​ ​→ He gave away [​three/free​?] kittens.

Yes​ → He gave away [three?] kittens.

Yes​ → He gave away [free?] kittens.

  1. Can I just say what a comfort to discover an individual who actually understands what they are talking about over the internet. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to look at this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular since you surely have the gift.
