Hi. The correct answer of this question is (c) - did not want to ask anyone for favours.

In the story

Narrator: "Well," I said, "we're leaving on Monday. Is there anything I can do for you before we go?"

Nicola shook his head, but suddenly Jacopo said, "Sir,” he burst out, "every Sunday we make a visit to the country, to Poleta, 30 kilometres from here. Usually we hire bicycles. But tomorrow, since you are so kind, you might send us in your car."

I had already told Luigi he might have the Sunday off. However, I answered, I'll drive you out myself."

There was a pause. Nicola was glaring at his young brother in vexation. "We could not think of troubling you, sir."
