Can someone explain why inured isn't a correct option here since 'attuned' is similar in meaning to 'inured' i.e. accustomed to something.
Thanks in advance

Inured and cauterized are used in the sense getting accustomed to something, especially something unpleasant.

Unpleasant being the keyword here. Attuned is not used in the same sense.
