@Dipta.

Here, candid means straightforward or direct and thus, indirect being it's opposite.

And so the answer is untruthful which is opposite to honest.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

As it has been describe that we have to find out the same relationship word. Then the word Honest is same as Truthful. So why the option D is correct, as untruthful is the opposite meaning of the word "Honest".
