This one is for a rare idiom.

i'd go with D.
I believe the idiom is "professed ignorance" and "since fear that" does not sound right. "for fear that" sounds like the right idiom there.

Same here.. It should be D.

You professed ignorance of the crime.

A noun form(ignorance) is more appropriate than and adjective form (ignorant).

Also, The reason shuold start with "For" and not "SINCE".

Since has two meanings and is therefore less preferred to "for" in this case.

According to question:
ans: D
because "ignorant" is adjective and "ignorance" is noun form and "for" at the end is more apt and less ambiguous in comparison to other options.

kindly let us know the answer and also the difficulty level
