Q.

After the accident, the nerves to her arm were damaged and so the muscles ____ through disuse.

 A.

atrophied

 B.

contracted

 C.

elongated 

 D.

invigorated

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

The sentence states that the muscles were not used and so we would expect them to waste away. Atrophied means wasted away, or withered.
Note that dwindled means grew less but could not be used for muscles.

(invigorated = energized)
