Piccadilly Circus was full of loneliness.It seethes and echoes with it. To live near it. Looking down on it is a discomforting exercise. You can't feel the pulse of London here, though people expect to. To Londoners it is a maddening obstruction between one place and another, and few voluntarily linger there. The only locals are those who live off the lingerers; the lingerers are primarily sightseers, with a fair sprinkling of people hoping to draw attention to themselves - both typically from the provinces. They have come to see the heart of London and expect to see spectacle, glamour and vice.

It might be a building or an area, but in the second sentence "echo" word is used. So i guess option(c) is correct.

Echo is used here, so it must be an option (b). Because in that option resounding is used.

It was not mentioned the location of cirus in the paragraph. So lonliness building is clearly given. Option (b) is most suitable.

Resounding takes place when area is surrounded by building or wall, so option c is correct.

As it is mentioned in the next line that its an obstruction to traffic, which implies that it must be a centralized area.
