a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 3
 
Replace 'last' with 'latest'.

'Last' means 'final in position or order'.

'Latest' expresses 'time'.

The correct sentence should be: You can see this channel for the latest news of this week.

In case of 'last' 'later', 'latter' and 'latest'
Later expresses 'late in time'.
Latter expresses 'second in position or order'.

Latest expresses 'time'.
Last means 'final in position or order'.

Observe the examples below to see the difference -

My friend reached later than I expected.
The latter position was better than the former.
What is the latest news/ report?
He was first to come and last to go.
Who was the last man to join them?
