Correct option is
A

argument

'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.
The 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.
