So what's this question asking? Well, it's a vocab question.
"Despite" signals a contrary relationship.
Like "in spite of."
For us at least, this is good news, because it clues us in to the fact that we're looking
for a word that means the opposite of "find."
Unfortunately, "hide" isn't one of our options, but we're on the hunt for something like
that. Using this logic, we can give most of these
options the boot pretty easily.
"Illuminate" means to shed light on something, so that's the opposite of what we want.
"Reveal" means to make something known, so that's the opposite, too.
"Loosen" means... well, if you've ever opened a pickle jar, you already know what loosen means...
...and we're guessing you already know it makes no sense in this context at all.
Sorry, (B), (D), and (C), take your boot and go.
"Secure" is a tempting option, but it usually refers to making something safe,
rather than hiding something, so we'll have to say no to this one as well.
Since the verb "obscure" means to hide something from view, (A) is the best answer.
A for "Anybody going to tell us where the candy is hidden?"
