So - very - too - enough

Carol had a bad experience in that shop. They were ........ rude to her for no reason.

 

1- so   2- very   3- too   4- enough

 

Let me know what is the best answer. If possible, tell me why you chose it.

 

Thanks.

Yama, in the absence of any further context, I'd choose "very." "so" is more emotional, less objective, and could be used if the speaker sympathized with Carol, or were able to interpret her feelings. "too" would be justified if some negative outcome arose as a result, for example:

- Carol decided to leave the shop. The shop-assistants had been too rude (for her to be willing to stay).

Is there any other difference between " So " and " very " other than the one mentioned above in the quotation? I'm asking because the difference you mentioned won't help me much in answering other questions which aren't related to emtions. As always, thanks for your much appreciated help.
