Correct option is
B

stands

Option B: 'Comes' means 'occupy a specific position in place'.
'Stands' means 'put in a particular place'. The position or place here is the first rank in class.
This word means the same as the given italicized word. Hence option B is correct.
Option A: 'Scores' means 'succeed in an activity or achieve something'.
Option C: 'Arrives' means 'happen or occur'.
Option D: 'Completes' means 'finish making or doing'.
These words do not mean the same as the given word 'comes'.
So, options A, C and D are wrong.
