Which excerpt from the odyssey best shows that the ancient greeks greatly valued the idea of home?

Answers

You did not provide any excerpts, however, here are a few topics from the Oddysey that could be applicable for your answer.

Using the excerpt from when Odysseus was trapped on Calypso's island, you can see how he admitted that she was more beautiful than Penelope, but he wanted to leave for his home on Ithaca rather.

Another reason is that many excerpts within the story have Odysseus mention why he's going through the pain and suffering of battling and escaping treacherous settings such as landing on Circe's island, assistance from Gods/Goddesses, and bearing the trait of an Epic Hero of holding ideals.

Thus, any excerpt that is relatively similar to stated above points should be your correct answer.

Hope this helps! 

- My home is on the peaked sea-mark of Ithaca
under Mount Neion's wind-blown robe of leaves,
in sight of other islands—Dulichium,
Same, wooded Zacynthus—Ithaca
being most lofty in that coastal sea,

This portion from the excerpt shows a vivid description of Odysseus' home- Ithaca, showing pride towards it.

You're Welcome

After he and his men land on the island and plunder for goods, Odysseus commands them to return quickly to the ship so they can safely set sail. 
Answer is D

I drove them, all three wailing, to the ships, 
tied them down under their rowing benches, 
and called the rest: ‘All hands aboard; 
come, clear the beach and no one taste
the Lotus, or you lose your hope of home.’

As noted by the other respondent, this quotation from The Odyssey demonstrates the value the Greeks placed on the idea of home:
"I drove them, all three wailing, to the ships, tied them down under their rowing benches, and called the rest: ‘All hands aboard; come, clear the beach and no one taste the Lotus, or you lose your hope of home.’"

Some context:
The overall story arc of Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey, is one of going home.  The whole ten-year journey of Odysseus is ultimately aimed at getting home again to his wife and son.  Odysseus must endure many trials and difficulties in order to get home.  Meanwhile, back at home, his wife, Penelope, has her own challenges to face in keeping home intact for them and their relationship.  She must show her endurance and perseverance in the face of suitors who have other designs on her and her household.
