Analysing the options:

Statement

Correctness

Reasoning

Give a bribe

Incorrect

This is an unlawful act.

Behave as if you have not understood the feelers and persist with your application.

Incorrect

This would delay your work and the officer would keep giving feelers for bribe. 

Go to the higher officer for help verbally complaining about feelers.

Correct

This would be the most appropriate. 

Send in a formal complaint.

Incorrect

This would not work as you have not been asked directly for a bribe. You do not have any evidence for formal complaint. Also, you may face defamation charges for complaining against a govt employee without any evidence. 

 Hence, 'Go to the higher officer for help verbally complaining about feelers.' is the correct answer.
