Correct option is
'Idiomatic expressions are a
type of informal English that have a meaning different from the meaning
of the words in the expression.'
Option A: From the options, 'argument' forms an idiomatic expression 'getting into an argument'. It means 'to enter a quarrel or fight with someone'. It relates to the
given sentence "Why are Tim and Barry yelling?".
Hence A is the correct option.
other words 'discussion', 'conversation' and 'lecture' each do not form an idiomatic
expression. They all form literal meanings in the sentence, meanings
which are not quite relevant. Also, having a discussion, conversation or lecture does not require yelling. Hence options B, C and D are incorrect.
