Hint: Antonyms are the words that are opposite in meaning to another. The root words for the word 'antonym' are the words 'anti' meaning 'against' or 'opposite' and 'onym' meaning 'name’. For instance: the antonym of ‘hot’ is ‘cold’.

Complete answer:
Option A) Obliged - is an incorrect answer because the meaning of obliged is ‘make (someone) legally or morally bound to do something or require’ and this is not antonym of the word thankful. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.

Option B) Ungrateful - is the correct answer because the meaning of ungrateful is ‘not feeling or showing gratitude or unthankful or thankless’ and this is the antonym of the word thankful as they have different meanings or they are opposite in meaning to each other. Thus, this is the correct answer.

Option C) Request - is an incorrect answer because the meaning of request is ‘an act of asking politely or formally for something or appeal or petition’ and this is not antonym of the word thankful. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.

Option D) Pleased - is an incorrect answer because the meaning of pleased is ‘feeling or showing pleasure and satisfaction, especially at an event or a situation or happy or glad or delighted or gratified’ and this is not antonym of the word thankful. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.

Hence, the correct answer is Option ‘B’.

Note:Antonyms are the words that are opposite to each other i.e. antonyms of thankful are ungrateful and synonyms are the words that are similar in meaning. So, the synonym of thankful is pleased (Option D already given in the option). Thus, Option B is the most appropriate answer as compared to the other options as they do not have the opposite meaning to the given word.
