Initially all having $6$ balls that is:

Neelu=6,pavitra=6,sinthia=6,pallavi=6, madhvi=6

- Neelu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Pallavi $\implies$ Nellu=3, Pallavi=9
- Pallavi $\xrightarrow{-2}$ Pavitra,Pallavi $\xrightarrow{-2}$ Madhvi$\implies$ Pallavi=5, Madhvi=8,Pavitra=8
- Sinthia$\xrightarrow{-4}$ Nellu $\implies$ Nellu=7,Sinthia=2
- Nellu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Pavitra, Nellu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Madhvi $\implies$ Nellu=1,Pavitra=11,Madhvi=11
- Pavitra $\xrightarrow{-5}$ Sinthia $\implies$ Pavitra=6,Sinthia=7
- Madhvi $\xrightarrow{-4}$ Pallvai $\implies$ Madhiv=7, Pallavi=9

$\therefore$ Sinthia has $7$ balls remaining.

Option $(D)$ is correct.
