Answer : 4. "Assign"
Explanation :

The word "consign" means put someone or something in (a place) in order to be rid of it or them and "assign" means designate or set (something) aside for a specific purpose. 

Therefore, "consign" can be replaced with "assign" in the sentence, without changing its meaning. 

Hence, 4 is the correct option.
