Correct option is
B

shape

'Idiomatic expressions are a type of informal English that have a meaning different from the meaning of the words in the expression.'
Option B: From the options, 'shape' forms an idiomatic expression 'in bad shape'. It means 'to be injured'. It relates to the given sentence, where the speaker 'Dad' asks the listener 'Donna' about her foot. Hence B is the correct option.
The other words 'colour', 'conditions' and 'size' each do not form an idiomatic expression. They all form literal meanings in the sentence, meanings which are not quite relevant, nor are they clear. Hence options A, C and D are incorrect.
