Solution

The correct option is B Intelligent
The word 'fatuous' refers to something stupid, silly or lacking in seriousness. Since we have to pick up an alternative that is most inappropriate in the given context, we need to choose an option that's opposite in meaning to the word 'Fatuous'.
Thus, answer option (b) stands out as the correct answer choice.
