Bungling means lack of skill...
Can you clarify?

Hi,

No. In this case, bungling means awkward or clumsy. Actually, the animal went in someìhow on the right and on the left. He did movements unpredictable, so was really difficult predict it and catch.

And this behavior was an impediment an obstacle to predict and hunt it. C is the only synonym of the obstacle.

Hope this helps.

This is a really smart question where it is asked if the the physical incapabilities have any impact on inspection. SO basically the bungling was a major roadblock for any smart investigative move.

While A and C are undoutedly the correct answer one must hinder themselves to look at the option choices before coming up with their own word.

blank focuses on BUNGLING and related to BUNGLING "since it was so unpredictable as to obscure any pattern that might otherwise lead to her capture. "

So the word should be something which prevents the SPY's CAPTURE.
