    out of the 4 alternatives ,chose the one which best expresses the meaning of bliss

    Disclaimer:-
    This is not Home work
    I have a dictionary and I have considered that too

    synonym for Bliss:-
    aleasure
    b:-Fantasy
    c:-Happiness
    d:-Laughter


    I know that pleasure and happiness ,both are near synonyms now the problem is which one to choose and why ?
