Option B is correct because 5t=EC. If the direction of load is at joint, then the direction of load on the incoming member will also be at the joint.

I think it's option B.

Option B is correct it is tension.

EC member behaves like column so there is compression Not tension.

It should be b. 5 tension. Consider equilibrium of joint at E.
