ANSWER

Correct Option is: "2"

Solution:

Diary is the keyword in statement I. It hints that she kept time for them and so the word needed is calendar.

Calender refers to a machine in which cloth or paper is pressed by rollers to glaze or smooth it.

Sentence II talks of a smile and so we get to know that wry is the word needed. Wry means an expression of dry humor.

Rye is a plant used to make cereal.

Bouillon is a thin broth made by simmering beef or chicken in water, while bullion, the word needed in statement III, means reserves of gold kept by banks in the form of bars, ingots or plates.

In statement IV, a faun is a mythical creature with the body of a man and the horns, ears, tail and legs of a goat.

Fawn refers to a young deer. Invidious means something unpleasant or offensive.

Insidious means something which proceeds in a gradual, subtle way but with very harmful effects.

It goes with the word pleasures in statement V.

Thus, the correct answer is option (2), BBAAB.
