Can anyone help me to fill this sentence and explain, please? I can not distinguish between engage in and engage with :(

1. Now she is engaged...........decorating their new house in North Plains.

a. with
b. in
c. for
d. into

Thank you very much!

    In is what you need. If you are engaged "in" doing something you are involved in it. The other possible option is "with" but this suggests interaction -

    She was engaged in the audit.
    She was engaged with the auditors.
