Hint: The word in the given question refers to ‘(of a building or other area) provide lodging or sufficient space for’ or in a more general sense ‘fit in with the wishes or needs of’. Try to pronounce the given word. This will help in narrowing down your options.

Complete answer:
 A transliteration doesn’t tell you the meaning of the words, but it helps you pronounce them. Transliteration changes the letters from one alphabet or language into the corresponding, similar-sounding characters of another alphabet. Here, we are transliterating an English word itself.
The required word is pronounced as ‘uh-com-mo-date’. This is the correct way to pronounce the word.
Now, we know the pronunciation of the given word. Let’s go through each of the options:

a) accomodate - The first half of this word is spelled correctly. It used two c’s which is correct as that produces the ‘uh’ sound at the beginning. However, in the transliteration, two m’s are also required, which are not in this spelling. This is not the correct way to pronounce it, and so this is an incorrect spelling. This is not the required answer. So, this is an incorrect option.
b) acommodate - The second half of this word contains two m’s. This is correct. The first half of this word contains only one ‘c’. This is wrong as it will change the pronunciation of the word. This is not the correct way to pronounce it, and so this is an incorrect spelling. This is not the required answer. So, this is an incorrect option.
c) accommodate - This word would be correctly pronounced. This is the correct spelling of the given word, as it is pronounced as the given transliteration. This is the correct way to pronounce it, and so this is the correct spelling. This is the required answer. So, this is the correct option.
d) accommodat -This word is pronounced almost exactly the same, however, the last part of the sentence would be pronounced as ‘datt’ instead of ‘date’, because of the missing ‘e’. This is not the correct way to pronounce it, and so this is an incorrect spelling. This is not the required answer. So, this is an incorrect option.

Note:
Try to transliterate the given word. Transliteration is the writing of words exactly how
they sound. Then, transliterate the rest of the options. Whichever option matches the
transliteration of the word in question, is the correct answer.
