I suppose you are living in USA.

On the second option "non-resident alien", if you are residing in USA, then you are not considered as non-resident. So I would eliminate this option.

On the first option "non-permanent resident alien", if you are residing in USA, I would choose this as the right option. Since holding an H1B means that you are a temporary (non-permanent) resident alien. Holding an EAD does not allow you to stay here permanently. It is only a temporary authorization to allow you to work without H1B. Remember that it requires renewal every year.

To answer your question, you are a non-permanent resident alien.
