part of a television extravaganza.
a) choosing for
b) chosen for
c) choosing as
d) chosen as
I'm confused between b) and d). I wonder what the right answer is .
Please give me your explanation.
If you are chosen for a prize, you are one of the candidates to win the prize (or the winner). If you are chosen as a prize, someone else has won and they will be given you to take home instead of something more normal like a cheque or trophy.
