Hint: The word ‘Incision’ refers to a surgical cut made in skin or flesh or a depression carved/scratched into a surface. For example, “The surgeon made an incision on his lower abdomen.”

Complete answer:
Option a ‘Event’ refers to an occurrence of an incident or something that is of importance. For example, “The event of the lunar eclipse falls on next Sunday.” This is not similar in meaning to the word ‘Incision’. Thus, option ‘a’ is incorrect.
Option b ‘Indecisiveness’ refers to the quality of not being decisive or feeling uncertain about something. For example, “Her indecisiveness was her major weakness.” This is not related to the meaning of the word ‘incision’. Thus, option ‘b’ is incorrect.
Option c ‘Dispute’ refers to a disagreement or argument over opinions or perspectives. For example, “The dispute between the teams heightened after the slight disagreement.” This is not similar in meaning to the word ‘incision.’ Thus, option ‘c’ is incorrect.
Option d ‘cut’ means an opening or slit made with a sharp tool. For example, “He made a small cut on his skin for the puss to come out and the wound to heal.” This is similar in meaning to the word ‘incision’. Thus, option d ‘cut’ is the correct synonym of the word ‘incision’.

Note:
 Incision specifically refers to the skin while a cut can be made on o any surface like a paper or skin. But both have a similar meaning and are hence synonyms.
