    Here the correct option is 1) $0.

    Explanation:

    Here Daniela will not recognize any gain because in the operating distribution, JRD partnership has not distributed money in an amount that is greater than Daniela's basis in the partnership interest and since a partner will never recognize a loss from partnership distribution, then Daniela will focus on reducing the basis of inventory she has received in the liquidation of her interest.
