Correct option is
B

recount

The highlighted word, in this context, means 'narrate' or 'give an account of'.
Option B is correct. 'Recount' also means 'give an account of'. Thus, it has the required meaning and is the correct answer.
Options A, C and D are incorrect. They do not have the required meaning.
'Reveal' means 'uncover' and 'recollect' means 'remember something from the past'.
