I am unable to understand this.

stern means.. serious..tough. Now we need something to complement it ( support it, add to it )
it could be spite, indifference or malice depending on the intensity of the clue word ( stern ) but certainly not love.
Since, stern is not that much intense, indifference seems a better fit.
Please explain.

This is simple, 'complement' means 'go along with', 'to positively add to'. She had a stern attitude toward her child so it must be complemented with something positive.When looking through the options it is obvious that the answer is love which is the only positive word in the choices
