Explanation

Lindsay is described as hesitant and unsure, and is weighing the conflicting motivations of health and convenience, so you need a word that means something like hesitated or was unsure. Of the choices, only vacillated makes sense. Be careful of choice (C): To support equivocated, you would have to know that Lindsay had already spoken to guests about the issue.

Hence option B is correct!
