Pause in indecision before saying or doing something:

She hesitated, unsure of what to say.
One hesitates over publicizing these things.

I do not agree with your answer. No option best gives the correct synonym. Because slowed could be correct if you look at it in the context of being reluctant to do sth. Likewise stop and pause if viewed in a different context.
