I would go for
(B) Increased responsiveness to adults

As the child in orphanage. No primary caretaker. Multiple care takers. So that child won't have that separation anxiety.

Default Correct answer D.

This child is likely to show depression at this time. Loud protests occur initially when the
mother leaves the child. With her continued absence of over 2 months and the child's placement
in an orphanage, this child will suffer more serious consequences. These consequences include
depression, decreased responsiveness to adults and deficits in the development of social and motor
skills.
