Correct option is
C

colleagues

There are two numbers in Noun-Number: Singular and Plural. When we speak about one person / thing, we use the noun in singular form. When we speak about more than one person / thing, we use the noun in plural form. 
In the sentence given, we are referring to one of many 'friends'. Hence, the underlined part must have a plural noun. Only options B and C are plural. However, social circles is a group of people and, hence, is not the correct option here.
This leaves us with option C as the right answer.
