I am stuck on the following from my vocabulary homework:
4. The elm tree_________is causing many of the trees to die.
(a) stagnation (b) havoc (c) blight (d)decomposition

I have ruled out (b) havoc. I am 100% sure that one is not correct. I think the right answer is (a) stagnation. Can someone give me some feedback and just let me know if I am on the right track? Thanks.
