Chance is the correct answer because they just think that as they catch train they have chance to shopping it is just an imagination no more options are right.

Why not 'possibility'? It also suits the blank.

Chance is the opportunity.
Luck is not in your hand.

Possibility - it may be or may not be happen.

So its very clear that CHANCE is the answer.
