In B, there is no mention of being previously very good behaviour wise and in D there is mentioned.

What about uniformity?

Also though the continuous erratic behavior of D could be seen as less erratic than simply one random outburst. If erratic behavior becomes the norm, then it is no longer erratic.

It's a tough choice between B and D, in a broad way we can say that both are correct but technically D is more correct because it includes a clearly mentioned time factor.

Previously Jeffrey didn't show this kind of behaviour that's why it seems much erratic than of Martin's.

In b he can't say that he is unhappy. While leaving the floor he punches a hole in the floor. There is other reasons behind that cause.
