There is no word despite of.

Inspite of = despite.

Why can't we say, " they continued to work in the field even though there is heavy rain"?

If you use like that they are start working when there is heavy rain but here given is while they are working there is an heavy but without considering it they are continuing with their work.

Why not option A is right?

Can any one tell me, Why not option A is right?

@Ramesh.

They continued to work --> Is in past tense whereas the option A is in the present tense. So option A should not be the answer.
