Hint:First we must read all the given options and we must know the usage of the words. Later we must know the usage of the different words. Choose the option which will be grammatically correct. Also we must see that the selected option will make the sentence meaningful.

Complete step-by-step answer:
The above given sentence is required to be corrected and even we need to see whether we can use articles to complete and correct the sentence.
Let’s first know the articles. Articles are the words that define a subject, the, a, and an, are three articles. There are some criteria for using the articles. “An” is used before any vowel sound and “a’ is used with consonant sound whereas ‘the' is used to define some specific and unspecific nouns.
Now let’s examine and understand the above given options and find the appropriate option
an/no article/the/no article: as per the explanation ‘an' is used with vowel sound which is appropriate for first blank here if I talk about the second blank article ‘a’ will be used with consonant “wonderful’ but in option ‘no article’ is written which is incorrect here. So this is an inappropriate option for this sentence.
An/a/no article/no article: as we know ‘an’ is used with vowel sound and ‘a’ is used with consonant sound which is absolutely appropriate for the first and second blank but if talk about the third blank article ‘the’ will be used with “life” to define specific noun but in option it is written ‘no article’ which is incorrect here. So this is an inappropriate option for this sentence.
A/a/the/the: as per the explanation ‘a’ is used with consonant sound but in the sentence ‘interesting’ doesn’t have consonant sound, it has a vowel sound. So this is an inappropriate option for this sentence.
An/a/the/no article/: option [C] is absolutely an appropriate option because ‘an’ will use with “interesting”, ‘a’ will use with “wonderful”, ‘the’ will use with “life”, and “Victorian times” don’t require any article.

Note:To understand such questions the study of articles in English grammar is required so that we can form correct sentences.
Articles are the words which combine with nouns to form noun phrases.
A, An, The are the three articles.
