    giving or given to introduce a statement?

    Hello, my question is about the following sentence:

    Obviously, ......... the lack of space at our disposal, we cannot be totally comprehensive.

    The correct answer, according to the answer key, is giving.

    I wrote "given", is it wrong? In the test I would have gotten zero points with that answer.

    Thank you

    "Given" is correct; "giving" is not correct.

    I agree with Mike. The second half of the sentence is a bit strange too- not very natural.
