Hint:Synonyms are the words that have the same or similar meaning and to avoid repetition synonyms are used. For example: the synonym of beautiful is pretty and adorable.

Complete answer:
Pronouns have three cases: nominative (I, you, he, she, it, they), possessive (my, your, his, her, their), and objective (me, him, her, him, us, them). Use the nominative case when the pronoun is the subject of your sentence.
Option A) she, She, her, Him, she – is an incorrect answer because the first sentence refers to the female as an object, so, instead of she – her should be used. Thus, the first pronoun ‘she’ is incorrect thus, this is an incorrect answer.

Option B) she, She, her, He, she – is an incorrect answer because the first sentence refers to the female as an object, so, instead of she – her should be used. Thus, the first pronoun ‘she’ is incorrect thus, this is an incorrect answer and it is important that the placement of the pronoun should be used correctly in every blank.

Option C) her, Her, she, He, her – is an incorrect answer because ‘her’ is used correctly in the first blank, the second refers to the female as the subject, hence, ‘she’ should be used not ‘her’ again this is an incorrect pronoun used and an incorrect answer.

Option D) her, She, her, He, her – is the correct answer because in every blank proper pronouns are used. So, the sentence formed using the correct pronoun is ‘Everyone did well at the interview except her. She approached her boss to put in a word for her. He did. I wonder whether this recommendation will help her to be promoted’. Thus, this is the correct answer.

Hence, the correct answer is Option ‘D’.

Note:The first sentence refers to a female as the object, hence, "her" is used. The second refers to the female as the subject, hence, "she" is the correct pronoun. The third part refers to a female as the object, hence, "her" is used. The fourth refers to the male boss as the subject, therefore, "he" is used. The fifth part refers to a female subordinate as the object of the sentence, therefore, "her" is used. Hence, Option D is the correct answer because it adheres to all the rules of the pronoun. The rest of the options do not adhere to this rule, hence incorrect.
