Note that the pronoun for 'him' is shown here. However, what does 'him' replace? It is replacing Rudolf the reindeer. Reindeer in this case becomes an 'it' as one would either say: Look at that reindeer - or - Look at it. The Spanish indirect object pronoun for 'it' is 'lo'. Therefore, 'lo' should appear in the Spanish translated sentence rather than 'él' for 'he'. Each answer has correctly translated this. The second answer reads: …laughed and called him numbers. The third answer reads: …laughed and called him men. The last answer reads: …laughed and called him human. Neither of these is correct.
