 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(B) is correct

The sentence structure implies opposites are needed. (It will be hard to do something now that something else has happened.)
Hence, It will be hard to mollify (pacify or soothe) him now that you have so incensed him.

(incensed = made angry; ruffled = irritated; subjugated = suppressed)
