I don't need to add anything as it's explained in a well defined manner here
"Habours" is the only one of the four choices that makes sense. The reference here is to the phenomenon of hibernation. When animals hibernate, they appear to be lifeless ("apparent lifelessness"), but in fact they are in a state of dormancy ('dormant life"). The word "harbours" here is roughly equivalent to "contains," and it further suggests a sort ofprotective containment (on analogy to a literal harbour, which holds ships in a protected and safe environment). None of the other three options comes even close to providing this sort of meaning.
