I think here correction required in 2nd part of the statement. That should be "to office" instead of "to the office".

Ravi said: (Dec 1, 2016)  
Office specifies the particular office so we specify particular things we can use the.

Manoj Rajendran said: (Apr 28, 2017)  
I think the answer is B. Because father goes to office is a primary purpose, So we should omit articles there.

I think it should be " five day in a week".

Vaishnavi said: (Dec 7, 2017)  
Why it can't be five days in a week?

Aru said: (Feb 21, 2018)  
Why it can't be five days in a week?

@All.

When we speak about the days in a week, we always use the phrases like "two days a week", "24 hrs a day" etc. I hope it clears the doubt.

Part C have an error.
