Correct option is
A

link

The proverb, 'A chain is only as strong as its weakest link' means: A group or organization is only as strong as the weakest or least powerful person. A chain is made up of several links. Even if one link snaps, the entire chain gets broken. This is used to express that a group can only be as successful as its least successful or powerful person.
The correct word to fill the given blank is 'link'. Hence option A is correct and the other options are incorrect.
