The only one of these choices that could be correct is the first one.  The others show an improper connection between price and quantity demanded.  The one caveat is that the phrase in the first option that reads "quality of good and service demanded" must read "quantity..." in order for this to be correct.

The second option has higher money demand leading to lower interest rates.  This cannot be since interest rates are the price of money.  The third option has lower interest rates leading to a reduced quantity demanded of goods and services.  This cannot be since lower interest rates make it easier for consumers to buy.
