    According to Merriam-Webster, Preemption means: 1) the right of purchasing before others; especially : one given by the government to the actual settler upon a tract of public land" 2)a prior seizure or appropriation So according to the definitions, we would eliminate A since it its a right way of the word's usage. Preemption is used as taking or a prior seizure of the new library books.

    D is similar to A so you can eliminate that too. Try to solve it now. :D
