"The judge cared not one whit for ____________ and would liberally berate any who embellished their testimonies with elaborate pleading gestures or worse yet, broke into feigned bouts of sobbing."

Meaning:- Judge basically didn't care for exaggerated emotional behavior.

A- Dissimilitude means dissimilarity. Makes little sense here.
B- Histrionics means melodramatic behavior. Perfect fit.
C- Flamboyance means attracting attention due to exuberance, confidence. This is a +ve word so won't work.
D- Prevarication means speaking evasively. Illogical here.
E- Argumentation means reasoning systematically. Very nearly an opposite.
