  • The correct answer is 'dismissed'.

Key Points

  • Let's explore the meaning of the marked word.
    • Dismissed: to decide that something or someone is not important and not worth considering.
      • Example: I think he'd dismissed bầm as an idiot within five minutes of meeting bầm.
  • Thus, 'dismissed' will be used in the blank as the context of the sentence is explaining that the person first thought that there was a double meaning in her words but later he found that the thought is not worth considering.
  • Therefore, the correct answer is option 3.

The correct sentence is: He suspected a double meaning in her words, but dismissed the thought.
