Take another look at the sentence:

After bumping the wobbly table, Neil cought the box of donuts before it hit the floor, but no one drank juice that morning because it exploded in a spray of orange on the kitchen tile.

The first verb, cought, is the problem. The sentence requires the simple past. Caught is the correctly spelled form.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
catch catch(es) caught caught

Hit, the verb you chose, is perfectly correct. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
