I have a slight doubt about this question... I think that the pronunciation of 'guarantee' is the same for both options, 'A' and 'B'. In that case, I don't see why 'D' would be wrong...

The Great White Shark is the largest predatory shark, and is probably the most well-known and feared shark. The Great White Shark is grey or bluish above and white below. The largest Great White Sharks can reach lengths of 22 feet and weigh up to 5,000 pounds. Most are between 13 and 16 feet and weigh 1,500-2,400 pounds.
The Great White Shark has big teeth, which are positioned in rows and serrated. When the Great White Shark attacks, it bites its prey and shakes it head back and forth. The serrated teeth act as a saw and literally tear the victim apart.
The Great White Shark generally feeds on fish, seals, dolphins, porpoises, otters, and turtles. It is believed to locate its prey by electrosense and by smell. Great White Sharks have special pores called Ampullae of Lorenzini, which enable them to detect the electromagnetic fields radiated by moving organisms. Great White Sharks can detect voltage as small as one half billionth of a volt.
Great White Sharks use many different hunting techniques depending on the prey. Most of the time, the shark will remain still underwater before attacking its prey from underneath. In case of hunting some kinds of seals, the impact of the shark is so powerful that it knocks both the shark and the seal clear out of the water. With larger prey such as elephant seals, the shark will simply take a huge bite out of it and wait for it to bleed to death.
Great White Sharks are most commonly found throughout the world's sub-arctic coastal waters, though they are likely to spend most of their time in the open ocean. They are also found in the waters of the coast of South Africa, Australia, California and Mexica. They generally prefer water between 54 and 75 degrees fahrenheit.
The largest Great White Shark can be ____________ long.
D13 to 16 feet
B, as 22 feet is the longest mentioned in the para

The Land of the Vikings
Who has not heard of the Vikings-the dauntless sea-rovers' who in the days of long ago were the dread of Northern Europe?
We English should know something of them' for Viking blood flowed in the veins of many of our ancestors. And these fierce fighting men came in their ships across the North Sea from Norway on more than one occasion to invade England. But they came once too often' and were thoroughly defeated at the Battle of Stamford Bridge' when' as will be remembered' Harald the Hard' King of Norway' was killed in attempting to turn his namesake' King Harold of England' off his throne.
Norwegian historians' however' do not say very much about this particular invasion. They prefer to dwell on the great deeds of another King Harald' who was called “Fairhair”' and who began his reign some two hundred years earlier. This Harald was only a boy of ten years of age when he came to the throne' but he was determined to increase the size of his kingdom' which was then but a small one' so he trained his men to fight' built grand new ships' and then began his conquests. Norway was at that time divided up into a number of districts or small kingdoms' each of which was ruled over by an Earl or petty King' and it was these rulers whom Harald set to work to subdue. He intended to make one united kingdom of all Norway' and he eventually succeeded in doing so. But he had many a hard fight; and if the Sagas' as the historical records of the North are called' speak truly' he fought almost continuously during twelve long years before he had accomplished his task' and even then he was only just twenty-one years of age.
They say that he did all these wonderful things because a girl' named Gyda' whom he wanted to marry' refused to have anything to say to him until he had made himself King of a really big kingdom. He made a vow that he would not comb or cut his hair until he had conquered the whole country.
He led his men to victory after victory' and at length fought his last great battle at Hafrsfjord (to the south of Stavanger). The sea-fight was desperate and long' but Harald's fleet succeeded in overpowering that of the enemy' and Sulki' King of Rogaland' as well as Erik' King of Hardanger' were slain. Then Harald cut and dressed his hair' the skalds composed poems in honour of the event' and for ever after he was known as Fairhair. He was truly a great Viking' and he did not rest content with the conquest of Norway alone; for he brought his ships across the North Sea and conquered the Isle of Man' the Hebrides' the Shetlands' and the Orkneys' and he lived to the age of eighty-three.
King Harald 'Fairhair' fought for twelve years before he accomplished his task. In the passage' the 'task' refers to Harald's __________.
Afight to win the heart of Gyda
Bresolve to unite the fragmented Norwegian kingdoms under him
Cdream to conquer the Isle of Man' the Hebrides' the Shetlands' and the Orkneys.
Ddesire to build grand new ships and use this navy for conquests

Pelicans are birds. There are more than half a dozen species of pelicans. All of them have the sack for which the birds are best known for all over the world. The sack is like a big bag of skin hanging under their bill or their mouth. These large carnivorous birds use them to catch fish.
Many pelicans fish by swimming in a group. They may form a line or a "U" shape and drive fish into shallow water by beating their wings on the surface. When fish collects in the shallows, the pelicans simply scoop them up. The brown pelican, on the other hand, dives on fish from above and traps them in its bill. Pelicans do not store fish in their pouch, but simply use it to catch them and then tip it back to drain out water and swallow the fish immediately. The American white pelican can hold some 11.5 litres of water in its bill. Young pelicans feed by sticking their bills into their parents’ throats to retrieve food.
Along with giant pouch, pelicans are large birds with short legs, and they appear rather clumsy on land. Once in water, they are strong swimmers, thanks to their webbed feet. This means that webbing connects all four of their toes, even the back toe.
Pelicans are found on many of the world’s coastlines and also along lakes and rivers. They travel in flocks. They also breed in groups called colonies, which typically gather on islands. The average life span of pelicans in the wild is about 10 to 25 years and their average body size is about 1.8 metres but when they open their wings their wingspan is around 3 metres. These large birds usually weigh around 13 kgs.
In North America, the brown pelican is endangered, but populations are recovering to some extent. Chemical pesticides, which damage the eggs of pelicans and many other species, devastate the sea birds.
Pelicans are splendid fliers, too, and can soar like eagles with their giant wings. Getting up in the air can be challenging without the help of the wind. Pelicans must run over the water while beating their big wings and pounding the surface of the water with both feet in harmony to get enough speed for take off.
What are the pelicans famous for?
BForming a line
CTravelling in flocks
