In this case, answer B. "what" and "what".
Replace the word "what" with another noun, for example "toys"
If you try any of the four answers, we can see that only answer B will make sense.

Toys we can not get seems better than that we have.
Toys we can not get seems better than toys we have.
That we can not get seems better than toys we have.
That we can not get seems better than that we have.

The word "what" = "used relatively to indicate that which" in the dictionary as a pronoun.

"That which" we can not get seems better than "that(those) which" we have.


At least that's my take on it. Don't have a translation.
