Hello everyone,

I'm doing an English exercise and not so sure about the answer.

" Before you _________ an essay, you might make an outline. "

A. compose B. invent C. excel

Please help me! Thank you very much!

If you look up "excel" in the dictionary, you'll see that it's generally used intransitively.
So, which do you think fits better, "compose" or "invent"?
