Lie detector tests attempt to discern _________ by measuring physiological responses, including heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate.

This one has no tricks, quite straightforward, but probably answer choice selection may be tough.
My guess word was changes, but after going through list of options - it seems to be much simpler: a lie detector test attempts to find a lie/tendency to lie etc.

Thus mendacity (tendency to lie) and improbity (you might know probity - high moral values) are best fits

The keyword here is the "Lie detector" so any word related to lie should work, which are improbity and mendacity

in this sentence the lie doctor will measure the wrong objects like heart beat and blood pressure so the wrong meaning toward mendacity and improbity
