English term or phrase: dead spot
Estoy traduciendo un examen que se les toma a los futuros colocadores de pisos de arce (maple), y una de las preguntas dice lo siguiente:

Most people think a floor has *****dead spots***** when what happens?
A. When finish oozes out between flooring strips
B. Sound variations when ball bounced
C. Volleyball inserts rattle
D. The finish wear unevenly

No se si en español se traduce punto muerto, punto ciego o de alguna otra forma. ¿alguien me podría ayudar?
