    Why "reproach" cannot be an answer?

    Hi, guys... Could you please explain why (B) cannot be an answer?
    Please read the following short paragraph..

    While some Korean government officials dislike the custom of eating dogs because they fear it may harm the nation's image, young people somtimes __________ it simply because they see dogs as animals to be petted, not
    butchered.

    (A) resent (B) reproach

    The answer is (A) ... Why not (B)?

    Thank you for helping me out...^^

    Hello Juliana!

    To reproach (somebody) means to impute blame to a person for something.

    To resent (something) means to feel bitter, indignant or angry at something....therefore it's the only possible answer here.
