Question:

After being kidnapped and held for 10 days, Margaret entreated her captors to release her.
The word “entreated” in the sentence above most nearly means what?

A pleaded
Explaination

The sentence is about a woman who has been held against her will for many days. It makes sense that she would plead or beg for her release. That she would throw, sympathize, or anger for her release does not.
