Looks like the middle one. Purchased a few months ago. Don't see fn key
Electronics Technician: Andy Mont, Engineer replied 7 years ago
Ok, you have a Kindle 2.

Unfortunately you cannot adjust the brightness. It displays just like a book would, so it does not to harm your eyes for reading much.

You can get a light if you want to read in the dark with the Kindle:
eLuminator2 or Mighty Bright XtraFlex2

It seems that the brightness was OK at first, now it is not. Could it be defective? Seems like telling someone to purchase a light is not a very good suggestion. Certainly not what you advertise.
Electronics Technician: Andy Mont, Engineer replied 7 years ago
ok, in this case the problem is different. If the brightness has changed, then your display unit might be defective.
As you bought it just a few months ago, I would suggest you to contact the Amazon customer care directly to ask the best way to tackle this problem regarding a possible replacement of your Kindle.
You can do this from the Kindle support page.

Anyway, about your concerns about my answer, I told you how in your Kindle it is not possible to change the display's brightness (only thing, you might want to change the text size with the Aa button)
