    TOEIC part5

    Dear teachers,

    The following fill-in-the-blank multiple choice question is one of the TOEIC test Part 5 exercises from a test preparation book. The book says the answer is (B), but I think (C) is also a right choice. Am I wrong?

    ------- in emergencies can be obtained form organizations such as the Red Cross, the United Nations, or Salvation Army.
    (A) Assist
    (B) Assistance
    (C) Assists
    (D) Assistant

    Re: TOEIC part5

    (C) Assists is short for assistances, a plural noun, and it's generally used in sports.

    (B) Assistance in emergencies is the best choice given the context.
