Hi,

Hallucinating is too strong here as we need to express the idea of supposition. Hallucinating would refer to some kind of medical condition.

I selected hypothesising, but it was marked as incorrect and dithering was suggested as the right answer.

I just tried it and it worked correctly, indicating hypothesizing is the correct answer. Could you have mistakenly selected a wrong answer?
