It doesn't mean anything. It's incorrect.
The only answer that makes any sense out of those choices is 'arm'.
'Arms' can mean weapons.
If you arm someone with a weapon you give them a weapon.
If you arm the weapon, you prepare it for firing/detonation.

Hi EL,

'Stomach' when used as a verb usually means 'put up with' or 'endure' something that is unpleasant.
