Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate option that follows:
............. wolf, meeting with .....lamb astray from .....fold, resolved not to lay violent hands on him, but to find some plea to justify to ....... lamb ........... wolf's right to eat him.
'A' should precede the wolf and the lamb since they are introduced for the first time. The 'fold' describes the lamb's fold. Therefore, the article 'the' should be used. Since the wolf and the lamb have already been introduced, the last 2 blanks should be filled with 'the'.
The correct order is a, a, the, the, the. Option A is the right answer.
