IMO the answer is no, nobody can, because there isn't enough data to decide between the various analyses. Also, you haven't come up with all of the possible analyses. I think you would be best off if you start by saying what you take the underlying forms of all of the involved morphemes to be. Also, did they give you a set of 4 rules to choose between, or are these your rules? Shame on them if the former.
