Hint: Modal verbs are auxiliary verbs like can, will, could, shall, must, would, might. After a modal verb, the root form of the verb is generally used.

Complete answer:
Option A) Should – is an incorrect answer because ‘should’ is used in an obligatory statement or it is used while offering advice. Here the customer is not taking any kind of advice. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option B) May – is an incorrect answer because ‘may’ is used to express possibility or while asking for permission. Here, the customer is taking or asking permission for buying the stuff. Thus, the use of ‘may’ is inappropriate and this is an incorrect answer.
Option C) Might – is an incorrect answer because ‘might’ is used to express slight possibility or the past participle of ‘may’. So, this is also an inappropriate answer. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option D) Will – is the correct answer because ‘will’ is used to express the wish or desire, so, here the customer shows the desire to buy two things. Thus, the use of ‘will’ is the most appropriate answer and this is the correct answer.

Hence, the correct answer is Option’ D’.

Note:In this question, the customer is certain that he is taking two items. This is evident from the next sentence in which he mentions the colours of the items he wants. Since the customer is not only stating a wish or desire but has asserted that he is going to take the items. We should use 'Will.' i.e. Option D is the most appropriate answer as compared to the other options.
