"chosen to receive" or "allowed to receive"?
after about ten minutes，she said．“Oh，that’s why I can’t find it in our system．You should have received a phone call a few days ago that your layaway was paid off by a secret Santa．”I couldn’t believe what I was hearing! This kind of story only happens in the news．Why was my family ________ to receive such a blessing?
This test question continues the cloze test I asked about a moment ago.
May I ask why should I say "chosen to receive" rather than "allowed to receive"?
