Correct Answer:

The masculine noun senātus belongs to the fourth declension, whose dative singular ending is -ī for masculine and feminine nouns. Choice (D), senātuī, is therefore the correct answer. Choice (A), senātū, is ablative singular; choice (B), senātum, is accusative singular; and choice (C), senātūs, is genitive singular or nominative or accusative plural.
