    Needlessly wordy - and why is it a question? 

    If she were asleep, she would have been unlikely to hear the conversation.

    None of them because the question is based on a false premise. To use main clauses that employ the conditional past mood, the subordinate clause must use the pluperfect subjunctive mood (i.e., "If she'd been asleep...").
