I have been suggested these several options of round cut diamonds and I am not sure which ones, if any, are good choices. Would like some advice, if possible?

GIA# 6335256039$12575 4. 1.89 Carat G-VS2 Excellent Cut Round Diamond
Option 1, 1.82 I SI1 – It says clouds not shown. When you look at the video you can see quite a few black clouds scattered throughout.
Option 2, 1.90 H SI1 – It’s an SI1 with “Clarity grade is based on clouds that are not shown.” It will have reduced transparency. This is an automatic skip.
Option 3, 1.80 I SI1 – Similar to option 3, there seem to be a lot of dark inclusions throughout the stone.
Option 4, 1.89 G VS2 – This diamond shows some strain – those faint lines you see on the facets as you rotate the diamond. It will have a slightly fuzzy appearance.
Not to complicate things further, but you might consider the options below instead. The 1.81 G SI1 slots in between option 1 and option 2 for price, but goes up in color to G. The twinning wisps are white. I think these inclusions look better than what you see in the videos you’ve posted; they should be eye-clean. The 1.9 I VS2 would be an alternative to the 1.90 H SI1, without the reduced transparency. And then for the price of the 1.89 G VS2, I’d go bigger with the 2.1 I VS2.
