motley, an enhancement


hybrid, a combination


nasal, a blend


mangled, a medley.

Option(B) is correct

Speech that is hybrid (made up of several elements) by definitions combines these elements. The technical term hybrid best suits this context because it is neutral term devoid of negative connotations (which motley and mangled possess).
