The reason he gave, _____, was most unconvincing.

A. which he had no money

B. since he had no money

C. that he had no money

D. for he had no money

Correct Option: Answer is C

The correct answer is C. that he had no money.

The sentence “The reason he gave, that he had no money, was most unconvincing” is a compound sentence. The first clause, “The reason he gave,” is independent. The second clause, “that he had no money,” is dependent. The dependent clause modifies the independent clause by providing more information about the reason he gave.

The word “that” is a subordinating conjunction that introduces a dependent clause.
