    not at all

    Tony__ fried chicken at all.

    A is fond of
    B is care of
    C doesn't food of
    D doesn't care for

    Teachers , Which one is right A,B,C,D? I think A, B are wrong, in that ending with at all means negative. I don't know what C means. So I think D might be right, which means Tony doesn't mind fried chicken at all.

    See above.

    Answer D could potentially mean he is ambivalent about fried chicken.

    Even so, it is the only answer that could possibly work for me.

    Re: not at all

    It's a strange question to me because it is unclear what it is testing.

    Re: not at all

    I think C has a typo anyway. I can't believe even the worst question-setter in the world would give "doesn't food of" as an option. I think it was meant to say "doesn't fond of". (It's still wrong!)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
