Correct option is
D

pieces of

The suitable word must be plural, as suggested by the number 'two'.
Option D: 'Pieces' is a plural noun and completes the sentence in meaning. 'Of' is a preposition that answers the question 'two pieces of what?'. A preposition connects a noun with a word or a sentence. Here, 'of' connects 'cake' with 'pieces'. Hence this option is correct.
Options A, B and C: 'Piece' and 'slice' are singular nouns. They do not match with the plural number 'two'. 'Pieces' is incomplete without 'of'. It does not form a complete thought.
Hence these options are incorrect.
