Read this sentence from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles wingspanens: The guard soon replaced his blunderbuss in his arm-chest, and, having looked to the rest of its contents, and having looked to the supplementary pistols that he wore in his belt, looked to a smaller chest beneath his seat, in which there were a few smith's tools, a couple of torches, and a tinder-box . . . Based on the context, a blunderbuss is most likely which of the following? A coin A flashlight A vest A weapon

    an arm-chest is a container that holds weapons. the passage speaks of a guard (who must own weapons with which to guard) checking over items, such as pistols. it is therefore a safe assumption that a blunderbus is a weapon
