So what's going on in this sentence? We know that Jessica wasn't feeling too hot about
playing the lead, so we can assume she wanted a reason to skip her big debut.
Let's see if any of these first blank options help us get that across.
"Compensation" means to receive some kind of a payment for a loss, so it's just not
right for this role. "Accolade" in an expression of approval
or praise. Jessica is too chicken to try for this, therefore (B) is off the list.
(C), "reward," isn't getting any accolades from us, because it doesn't make sense at
all in this context.
"Excuse" totally works. Jessica is definitely looking for any excuse to not do the part.
We'll make sure (E) doesn't have any hidden talents before we post this cast list, though.
Nope, "privilege" is total nonsense. (E) is out of consideration.
It looks like (D) gets the part. We already gave the first blank the go-ahead, and the
second blank looks good, too.
"Godsend" refers to something super lucky, like, say a gift that "God sent."
For Jessica, getting the flu was the best thing ever. For her understudy, it was probably
a good thing as well.
Although it might not have been a godsend for the audience.
