Could be please answer this with explanation?

 

Which of the following is an example of a pareidolic illusion?
 

A woman hears her mother call her name each time she sees her fridge door open

An elderly man is able to see the face of his grandchild in the clouds as they pass over him

A young man who is missing his girlfriend mistakes another woman for her in a crowd of people

A thirsty traveller in the desert mistakes the heat rising from the sand as a pool of water

A man is able to hear his wife calling his name from 100 miles away

I would go for - An elderly man is able to see the face of his grandchild in the clouds as they pass over him.... Formed objects

from ambiguous stimuli, coloured by prevailing emotion; not entirely due to inattention or affective change. Though you can argue that there is affective change in that man.
 
Man see her GF - this is affect illusion, as there is proper stimuli (like another girl's face, not ambiguous) , but he mistakes as his girlfriend. 
 
Mother call her name when fridge door open - functional hallucination. 
 
Wife calling from 100 miles away - Extracampine hallucination 
 
Thirsty traveller - This one is tricky, it can be pareidolic illusion as well. What do you think?

The face in cloud seen by an elderly man is the answer as it involves concentration.

Correct me if I am wrong

Yes definitely...''In Pareidolic illusion,  On paying extra effort the object intensifies – does not disappear'. Same can be true for thirsty man. Where did you find the question and what explanation did they give?

Executive function: I found this nice example in my notes, hope it will help you to understand, I am just quoting it ---

 

''Imagine a 10 year old girl celebrating her birthday party. She has a task in front of
her. She has to cut her birthday cake and distribute it to her friends. She has to
swiftly plan how to make pieces according to the measure of the cake so everyone
gets a share (PLANNING). Then she will initiate her action – will start from a
central cut, and then will proceed in one or other direction so the cake gets
dissected into more or less equal pieces (INITIATION). She has to then distribute
the cake – she has to choose a sequence for distribution so she will not be giving
the cake pieces to the same person every time (SEQUENCING). She has to
coordinate her visual movements, hand movements and balance so this
distribution proceeds smoothly (COORDINATION). If she, by accident, comes to
the same person twice, she must be able to recognize her error (ERROR
MONITORING). She then must be able to correct this error and go to the next
person (ERROR CORRECTION). After distributing to all those standing on her left,
she shifts her set, and distributes cakes to those on her right (SET SHIFTING).
When ever one has got a piece each, she must terminate her action irrespective of
how much cake is left (APPROPRIATE TERMINATION). ''
 
Dorsolateral frontal lobe regulate this executive function. 
 
 
Cognitive function includes: Orientation, Attention, Memory, Language.
