    someone asked why (d) is not the right answer?

    tks
    It's a good question! After all, "filled" (It should be "on the whole, filled") and "took up all the space in" mean the same thing.

    Webster says it's a small, soft, raised bread usually leavened with baking powder or soda. I'd say biscuits belong to the quick bread family. Quick breads are those made with a leavening agent, as baking powder or soda, that permits immediate baking. Usually there is no sugar in the recipe, although they can be topped with marmelade, etc.; and they are served hot.
