Option D
Dipole moment is always towards the central atom 
There are 2 co atoms so resolve the 2 vectors in case of ortho dichloro benzene you get u = 2.5 D 
In case of meta dichloro benzene you get u = 1.5 D
(Approximate values)
Therefore option D is correct
 
Hope it helps

there is some error in the options as dipole moment of 1 is equal to 1.2 D and second is more than 1.2D575-844_WhatsApp Image 2018-11-10 at 18.04.48.jpeg
