    The correct answer is A. Laputa

    Explanation:

    In writing, the diction refers to the selection of words of an author or the words the author uses in a text. Additionally, in the case of "original diction," this occurs when an author uses words other authors do not usually because the author creates specific words for a text. This is common in the book "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift because in this the author describes imaginary places with people, behaviors, and cultures that are unique and therefore uses new words. From the options provided, the one that shows this original diction is "Laputa" as this refers to the name of one flying island the main character of the book visits, but this word only belongs to "Gulliver's Travels" and was created by Swift which makes it part of an original diction.
