Answer!

The answer for this question involves knowing the difference between two homophones - words that sound similar but are spelled and mean different things.

The two answers A and D are made up, so the choice is really between answer B and C.

The word for military ammunition is ordnance, while the word for a local law is ordinance. Although most people pronounce them similarly, it pays to know how to spell them correctly.

Other, more common words to look out for that have similar challenges: your/you're, to/too, and there/their.
