Here it is mentioned the age and not the condition. Senility is a mental condition of old age, and dotage is the age when these mental problems happen.

Senile is specifically for mental condition so childish behavior comes from senility but dotage is a close one but its for weakness, not the behavior. I am so sure because we had a poem where 7 stages of life eas shown and the last was senility which says childish behavior.

Even you can go for Google or a dictionary.

A fool is a person who you think behaves or speaks in a way that lacks intelligence or good judgement.

Senility is the state of behaving in a confused or strange way, and unable to remember things, because you are old. 'Be in your dotage' means to be old and not always able to think clearly. When one can not think clearly (dotage) , he/she lacks intelligence and so behaves like a fool. But when one behaves in a confused way or is unable to remember things (senility), it doesn't necessarily mean he behaves like a fool.

So, the correct answer is 'dotage'.
