    have no qualm about lying

    I can understand "buts" means "objection" here, but can't get what c)tales or d)picks means. Are c and d nonsense or do they have any similar meanings?

    Q. Choose the right answer
    A:I can't tell Meg her dress looks great when it looks awful
    B:Well, I have no __a___ about lying so that she doesn't get upset.
    a)qualm
    b)buts
    c)tales
    d)picks

    I don't know about South Korea, but in the U.S., multiple choice answers usually have only one correct answer

    c and d are nonsense and you're barking up the wrong tree if you are trying to make "buts" fit there.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'm used to seeing "qualms" rather than "qualm" in a situation like this.
