    Does 'during the charming occasion' sound awkward?

    Hello!
    Could you please take a look at this question?
    The answer is (A) proud. But if I put (B) charming or (C) admirable in the blank, why are they wrong?
    Could you please explain it to me?

    Thank you.

    a coveted media award, the editor profusely
    thanked his staff during the ------- occasion.

    (A) proud
    (B) charming
    (C) admirable
    (D) assistive

    We simply don't describe occasions as either charming or admirable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
