    Among all the choices, except "never", they are all good for the context of the sentence AND the sentence pattern.

    However, the problem is the position of these adverbs.

    For

    "sometimes", you can place it in the middle of the sentence or the beginning of the sentence.

    "usually", we place it in the middle of the sentence, if you really want to place it at the beginning of the sentence, you need "," to separate it from the main sentence.

    "seldom" is always placed in the middle of the sentence.

    With the above said, the best choice would be "(A)Sometimes.

    As far as "never" is concern, since it is a negative word, to place it at the beginning of the sentence, you need to invert the subject and verb as:

    Never did she fly a kite on Sunday.

    The reason, why "sometimes" can place in front of the sentence is because it can be used to describe the situation of the entire sentence.

    On the contrary, "usually" and "seldom" are more often used to describe the verb of the sentence only. Hence, "usually" and "seldom" would be placed close to the verb it describes.

    Your questioned sentence give an impression to choose which adverb that will describe the ENTIRE situation of the sentence, not just the verb.
