The underlined word is closest in meaning to:

1. imprison
2. frustrate
3. disdain
4. confine

imprison: keep in prison
frustrate: has a meaning of prevent from progressing but not suitable here as it is taking about residents and not a mob
disdain: consider to be unworthy of one's consideration. Not suitable here.
