That is an interesting book which can _____ many children's imagination.
1) take
3) hold
4) form
The answer is 3)hold but I don't understand. Can someone explain to me? Thank you!

    The question is a little "off", I think, with that unidiomatic use of "can".

    This is an interesting book, which will _____ many children's imagination.

    I agree that "capture" is the best choice. The book may also "hold their interest".
