Correct option is A)

The teacher had dismissed the narrator from the competition simply because she had forgotten to bring her box. This males the teacher's position absurd. The narrator's mother repeatedly asks about the procuring of the box to underscore the absurdity.  Hence, Option A is correct. The rest of the options do not express this condition, hence, incorrect.
