Hi, Abo Hamza—The only answer that makes sense is "shouldn't": Sally's getting fat; that's why she shouldn't eat much rice. We use "much" in negative contexts. If "much" were changed to "a lot of," then "must" would also work: "Sally is getting fat. She must eat a lot of rice." In that case, the speaker would be making an inference about what she eats based on the fact that she is getting fat, rather than giving advice about how she should eat based on that fact.
