“Whenever she begins a tale, a crowd of children come to listen attentively” is an active way to describe a word like “entertaining” or, as in answer choice B, “captivating”. Descriptions of blanks won’t always be single words or even short phrases, so be on the lookout for longer descriptions when applicable.
