The Sense He Makes

Jacob's schoolwork today asked him to choose the correct word to complete the following sentence:

The boy (disliked, disagreed, dislodged) cake and ice cream.

Me: Jacob, why did you choose disagreed, here, instead of disliked?

Him: I thought disliked was the right answer, but who doesn't like cake and ice cream? So then I thought he'd disagree.
