Hint: Read the given words and the options carefully. Try to make out the core meaning of the sentence and point out the subject, predicate, and object of the sentences.

Complete answer: The words in the given sentence are jumbled, we have to arrange them in such a manner that they start making sense, and become logical. The given sentence may have two clauses. A clause is a part of the sentence that contains a verb. A typical clause consists of a subject and a predicate, the latter typically a verb phrase, a verb with any objects and other modifiers. We have to choose the best option.
Now, let us examine all the given options to find out the correct answer :
(a)’It was the innocent smile at having found something new and unique of a child.’- It cannot be the correct answer as it is not making any sense and is grammatically incorrect. So, we will eliminate this option.
(b)’It was the innocent smile of a child at having found something new and unique.’- It is the correct answer as the subject, and the predicate is placed correctly. The sentence is making sense and is logical. It is also grammatically correct.
(c)’It was something new and unique at having found the innocent smile of a child.’- It cannot be the correct answer as it is not making any sense and is grammatically incorrect. So, we will eliminate this option.
(d)’The innocent new and unique smile at having found something of a child it was.’- It cannot be the correct answer as it is not making any sense and is grammatically incorrect. So, we will eliminate this option.
Hence, option ‘b’ is the correct option.

Note: Pay attention to all the parts of speech given in all the sentences and see if they are correctly placed. This way, you'll get the correct answer easily.
