    1.

    "peculiar" has the "strange" or "weird" meaning in it. The other 3 don't have this implied meaning.

    2.

    "remain" has the meaning of "what is left behind" or "used up". Therefore, it is better to use "maintain", it has the meaning of "keep", or "hold".

    "retain" is like to keep something within a boundary or container.

    For example:

    This vessel won't retain water.

    "sustain" is for something to keep on going. for example:

    This wall will sustain shock wave from blast.
