Correct Answer : B.
The state/feature given by first words leads to the other. A mendicant lives by asking people for money and food because he is impecunious (having little or no money). Similarly, a bad-tempered and unreasonable (petulant) person, especially because he cannot do or have what he wants, would habitually be a complainer.
