Explanation

The clue phrase here is “exaggerated hilarity,” letting you know that the veteran thought the situation was funny or amusing. (Superannuated tells you that he was extremely old, thus exaggerating the impact of a lifetime of injustice. Risible, which means “laughable,” is most appropriate.

Risible.
