Noting the murder victim’s flaccid musculature and pear-like figure, she deduced that the unfortunate fellow had earned his living in some ________ occupation.

The deduction of the unfortunate fellow's occupation was based on observation of his flaccid (soft, weak) musculature and pear-like figure (not a well-structred body, the result of obesity).

People whose occupations do not demand great physical effort will have flaccid musculature and pear-like figure.

Therefore, sedentary is the right word from the choice list.

If the victim had flaccid musculature and pearlike figure, then they must have had a very easygoing occupation that involved very little physical work. Sedentary is the best fit.

people with flaccid (loose)physical structure will go for an occupation that need little physical work [sedentary=characterized by much sitting and little physical exercise]

She deduced his occupation from his flaccid(soft,loose) musculature and pearlike figure (not fit). Clearly to have these characteristics, he must be in a profession with little physical activity. So the choice is sedentary.Prestigious is tempting until you factor in famous sports-persons with athletic figures and taut musculature.
