Correct option is
B

an

Option A - 'A' is used before the subjects starting with a consonant sound. 'Orator' begins with a vowel sound. Thus option A is incorrect.
Option C - 'The' is used with the definite nouns. The sentence refers to the man as 'orator' generally, hence, it is an indefinite noun. Thus option C is incorrect.
Option D - We must use an article here as the noun is singular and countable. Thus option D is incorrect.
Option B - 'An' can be used here as 'orator' is being referred to just one person and it begins with a vowel sound. Thus option B is the correct answer.
'He is a better politician than an orator.'
