The first sentence seems completely out of place. Regardless, it seems to be looking for a characteristic which is positive. Therefore, you could place positive outlook in the blank.

As for the remainder of the sentences, they are all interlinked based upon the fact that they are all about Sara.

Suggestions could be:

b) thoughtful

c) Silver Spoon

d) appearance
