I can't help but wonder why option (a) "class act" should be considered "incorrect" in this sentence.

What's your take on this, Mr M?

Yes, "class act" for me too.

He might have been the class clown, at school.

I seldom get past spelling errors, but now, having re-read the sentence a couple of times, I wonder if the author did not in fact intend 'act' as the correct answer.

Class act - someone who shows impressive and stylish excellence.
