Solution

The correct option is B I am the most intelligent student in the class
An adjective can exist in three forms-positive, comparative and superlative. The positive form is the base form of the adjective. The comparative form expresses a higher degree of some quality. The superlative form expresses the highest degree. For adjectives with three syllables or more, the comparative degree is formed using the word 'more' and the superlative degree, using the word, 'most'.
The adjective, 'intelligent' (which has four syllables) is the positive form. Its comparative degree of comparison is 'more intelligent'. Its superlative degree of comparison is 'most intelligent'.  Hence, option C is the correct answer. 
Options A and D are incorrect as the words, 'intelligenter' and 'intelligentest' are incorrect usages.
Option B is incorrect as 'intelligent' is the positive form, not the superlative form.
