Subyek pada noun clause di atas adalah 'no food' yang merupakan kata benda tunggal jadi memerlukan adanya satu kata kerja tunggal juga.

Karena bentuk klausa induk di atas adalah past (replied), maka kata kerjanya juga harus dalam bentuk past yaitu 'was' sehingga jawabannya A. there was no food left
