The answer should be obturator internus. Piriformis originates from the anterior surface of medial three sacral bones and inserts in the medialaspectof greater trochanter. Obturator internus originates from inner surface of obturator membrane and inserts to the medial aspectof greater trochanter.superior and inferior gemellus originates from ischial spine and ischial tuberosity respectively and inserts to the medial aspectof greater trochanter with superior gemellus passing above the obturator internus and inferior gemellus below it.

It is obturator internus and not piriformis. piriformis lies way above these muscles.
