Harassment - A feeling of intense annoyance caused by being tormented
so both opt. a and b are correct.

Vinod said: (Jan 10, 2013)  
Both a and b seems to be correct as there is a very thin-line or subtle difference in meaning. Harassment is both physical and mental but more mental (stress related) whereas Torment is more physical than mental. Thus, torture should mean here as torment and not harassment.
