"Averted" means to avoid (averted disaster). "Deferred" means to delay or put off until later (deferred a loan payment). "Distorted" means to change, usually in a way such that the result is not desired (image in a fun house mirror is distorted). So the answers given above are correct. "Inferred" means to decide on circumstantial evidence, essentially. The photos didn't show any actual biological life waving at the camera. But other evidence seen on the photos would remind scientists of signs of life that they know from here on earth. If they see similar signs on Mars, they could infer that life once existed there too.
