Answer

Option (A). Consumption is “Rival” when, if one user/consumer is using/consuming a good at a certain time, no other user/consumer can use/consume the same good at the same time. In rush hour, two users cannot occupy the same seat at the same time, so it is Rival.

Consumption is “Non-Rival” when, if one user/consumer is using/consuming a good at a certain time, any other user/consumer can use/consume the same good at the same time. All residents of a country can enjoy the benefits from national defense – safety benefit obtained by one resident does not mean another resident cannot obtain the same safety benefit at the same time. So it is non-rival.
