3 for (A) to
4 start (B) started

 

Explanation:

  1. Getting-  ‘Ing’ is added at the end of a verb when we talk about it in continuous tense and the passage is not in continuous tense. So, the correct word is “get”.
  2. Use- “Use” is the present tense of the verb and the passage is in the past tense. So, the correct word is “used”.
  3. For-  “For” is because and it is not amazing because of meeting people. So, the correct word is “to”.
  4. Start- “Start” is the present tense of the verb and the passage is in the past tense. So, the correct word is “started”.

Thus, the correct paragraph is

I met her by chance when I

went to get some Medicine

which Sister Amy used to give.

It was amazing to meet Mother.

I started loving just her presence.
