Please, could you explain why is "dealing" the correct answer to the sentence?. I can't understand the meaning in this sentence and why handling is incorrect. Thanks

The word dealings is often used to mean business contacts. Handling means contact literally with your hands.It could simply mean picking up something,holding it and then putting it down.
