Correct option is A)

In options B, C and D, the sentences contain an adverb. In B and C, "quite" and "incredibly" are adverbs of degree. In option D, "always" is an adverb of frequency. 

However, in option A, there is no adverb. While "friendly" looks like an adverb because of the "-ly" suffix, it actually modifies the noun "advice", making it an adjective. Not all words ending with "-ly" are adverbs. Therefore option A is the odd one out and the correct option.
