Explanation

For this sentence, you need to infer how the beauty queen’s mother likely felt about her daughter being disqualified—namely, badly. The conjunction “and” signals that the second half is going to match the tone of the first half (as opposed to something like “but”), so the blank needs to be something showing that the mother is still not happy.

Placated and mollified both fit the meaning. Ameliorated is close, but only a problem can be ameliorated, not a person.

Hence options placated, mollified are best fit!
