    Re: She tried to be serious.

    Actually, none of them is correct. If you put a space after the comma following 'Yes', one of them is just about possible.

    Re: She tried to be serious.

    You should have,

    'Yes, but/however she couldn't help but laugh.



    Otherwise, C would be correct if you fix the punctuation.
