I am a bit confused about this to be honest. To embezzle is more of an fraudulent gain…..

Thank you for your participation. "To pocket" can mean to take possession of for oneself, especially dishonestly "pocketed the receipts from the charity dance" while "Embezzle" can also mean steal or misappropriate money "she had embezzled $5,600,000 in company funds". It is the closest answer. I'm glad this quiz made you ponder.
