Re: The captain (i) ___________ (ii) ___________ for as [#permalink]

The key for the solution is to look at the second part of the sentence, in which we do have

Quote:
the crew became frustrated and decided to take matters into their own hands, implying that they took over the ship


This means that the crew took possession of the ship, actually there was a mutiny and the captain was "wrap off".

Dissuaded is when you try to convince a person, for instance, to stay. It is exactly or almost the contrary of wrap off.

Hope this helps.

To dissuade means to persuade someone not to do something. By that deffinition, it should technically fit the sentence. I guess it doesnt fit simply because the word following it (mutiny) is not a person but simply an idea.
