Correct option (C) Distant


Far off : 

It can't be used in place of 'aloof' as far off' means long-long ago. Hence, incorrect alternative . 

Introvert : 

It means 'self-centred', Hence, It is an incorrect alternative. 

distance : 

This is an appropriate word because one of the meaning of 'aloof' is distant also while keeping distance between two nouns. 

Depressed : 

(it means 'hopeless') Hence, quite irrelevant.
