The following is a sentence from a reading comprehension exercise. The context is a 返品カード. I wonder what role で plays below:

返品理由当てはまるものを選び、アルファベットに◯をつけてください。

a.サイズが合わなかった。

b. ...

I have two guesses.

  1. で here is the te-form of だ. 返品理由 and 当てはまる both modify もの.
  2. で is a particle and means “as”.

Which (if any) of the above would be correct?

I think you can read the sentence as 返品理由の中で当てはまる… so で plays "location" role (inside the list, choose corresponding...).
