diesen

No

diesem

Correct Answer: 
No

dieser

Correct Answer: 
No

dieses

Correct Answer: 
Yes

Many German verbs are followed by an object introduced by a preposition. The preposition auf normally takes accusative when used in an abstract sense, as is the case in the expression sich auf einen verlassen ("to rely on someone"). The noun Mädchen is a neuter. The pronoun dieses (D) is the only option showing neuter accusative case, and this is the correct answer.
