Would you be kind enough to help to make the proper choice of the interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

noted = distinguished by reputation; famous
pocket book = a pocket-sized folder or case used to hold money and papers
caring attitude = anxious bearing /relation/ disposition/ posture
