Hint: Idioms are used in the options and it is not required to use idioms in the blank. So, identify the most appropriate word other than idiom.

Complete step by step answer:
Option A) Who laughs last – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of who laughs best is used to say that even if someone is not successful now he or she will succeed or be the winner in the end. Thus, this is an idiom and idiom is not required in the blank. So, this is an incorrect answer.
Option B) But do much – is the correct answer because ‘but do much’ is not an idiom and 'promise little but do much' means that you shouldn't make a lot of promises, as you may not be able to keep them. That leads to disappointment and resentment. It is best to make the promises and then do more than you were intending to. Thus, this is the correct answer.
Option C) That ends well – is an incorrect answer because ‘that ends well’ is used to say that a person can forget about how unpleasant or difficult something was because everything ended in a good way. All wells that end well is an idiom. Thus, this is an incorrect answer as it cannot be used to fill the blank.
Option D) While the sun shine – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘while the sun shine’ is that when you take advantage of the chance to do something while conditions are good or in other words, you make good use of your time or make the most of an opportunity while you have the chance. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option E) Never found again – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘never found again’ is it is a way of convincing someone not to wait to take action. Thus, this is an idiom and cannot be fit in the blank. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.

So, the correct answer is “Option B”.

Note:
Idioms is an expression whose meaning is different from the meanings of the individual words in it. For example: Spill the beans. Options that are given in the options other than Option B are idioms and it is not asked to fill the blank with an idiom. So, Option B is the most appropriate option.
