An interview for SEO Manager position

Hello, Hope everyone is doing well!
A few days back I attended an interview for SEO Manager potion. They asked me a question which confuses me.

They gave me a website and asked me to do keyword research and take out strong competitors. I did what they asked. I gave them the list of keywords and Competitors. After that, They asked me to prove the keywords which I listed were right for their website. That is what confused me. I used tools to check the organic traffic and the potential keywords. I listed based on the terms they used on their website. But, they said it`s all wrong and wanted me to prove right? i apologize, if this is off the topic. But, I need your help. Help me with an answer. Thanks. Cheers:)
