I was doing a CAE Practice Test on Use of English (It is a multiple choice exercise) when I came across the following example:
Her life was cut tragically short. She ______ a horrific accident at the National Air Show in Ohio in the USA, when her plane crashed through the roof of a building
In the gap you need to choose between underwent and suffered.
However, the answer key suggests suffered as the only possibility.
Why can't the latter work as well?
