This question is missing the necessary excerpt to be answered. I've found the complete question online. It is as follows:

Read the excerpt from Part 1 of The Odyssey by Homer.

feasting,—while fugitives went inland, running

to call to arms the main force of Cicones.

The best option is letter A. by describing their neglect of orders.

Explanation:

In the famous epic poem "The Odyssey", the main character Odysseus is on board a ship with his men, struggling to return home. Odysseus was told that if his men killed the cattle found in Helios's island, the boat and the men themselves would be destroyed. However, his men are stubborn and demand to land there. Odysseus then makes them swear they won't touch the cattle.

However, the men's promise only lasts for as long as they have food on the ship. As soon hunger begins to torment them, they lose their resolution and forget about the promise they made. The excerpt above shows how they ignored Odysseus's orders. It is this stupidity that will lead them all to die in a storm created by Zeus. Only Odysseus survives, since he is the only one who does not touch the cattle. If his men had been obedient to his orders, they would have stayed alive. They caused their own problems.
