The mechanic was astounded at his employers news.
1. amazed at
2. bothered by
3. happy about
4. perplexed by
I know that this is not standard. But I need your confirmation that both 1 and 4 are correct here. My first preference would be "amazed at" and the answer key went for "perplexed by".

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Amazed better conveys the surprise or shock of astounded to me.
