Answer

The given word 'voracious' means 'craving or consuming large quantities of food'.
From the options, Option B: 'hunger' too refers to a craving for food, and it best expresses the meaning of the given word. Hence option B is correct.
Option A: 'Wild' means 'not tamed or domesticated', 'uncultured'.
