Christophe ________ son déjeuner quand les autres sont arrivés.

Yes “finissait” is the right answer here, but the verb “terminer” is more appropriate here.

Bonjour Tonio,

Thank you for your comment! Yes, one can use 'terminer' (a more literary option) as well as 'finir' in this instance. As such, a hint is given for this question: Conjugate "finir" (to finish) in L'Imparfait

Please see link here for a discussion on a similar topic: choice-of-infinitive-for-we-have-just-finished

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
