The first sentence refers to ‘childcare’ and ‘childhood’ and the word connecting these is ‘for’. Let us look at the choices given for this blank. Choice (a)- Mistake- It is possible to mistake one idea for another. “No parent would mistake childcare for childhood” makes sense. No one who is a parent would equate the care they provide for a child to the experience of childhood. Choice (b)- Reject- One can say "No parent would reject childcare" but "for childhood" does not make sense when placed after this. Childcare is provided during childhood, not “for” childhood. Choice (c)- Conflate- To conflate is to fuse or merge. You can conflate one idea with another, but not ‘for’ another. This word does not make sense in the blank given. Choice (d)- Opt- This word does not fit in as well. “No parent would opt childcare for childhood” makes no sense. So only one option remains- option (a). Let us look at the second sentence and see what the completed text means. No parent would mistake childcare for childhood. Still, seeing the world anew through a child’s eyes can be a powerful source of stimulation. That is, no one who is a parent would think that by providing childcare, they are experiencing childhood. Still, while taking care of a child, they can feel the magic of childhood yet again, by seeing the world though a child's eyes. Correct Answer: A
