    puzzle about or wonder about?

    Is there life on Mars? Many people have ............about this question. Some writers of science fiction think of people from Mars as little green creatures.

    A. Wondered
    B. asked
    C. confused
    D. puzzled

    I chose D but the answer is A.

    What's the difference between puzzle about and wonder about?

    puzzled over/ about sth: to think hard about sth in order to to understand or explain it

    Usually it's "to be puzzled about" or "to puzzle over". A. "wondered" is correct.
