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.

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

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

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

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!)
