Anyone can teach me why (a friends) is the correct answer.

Prince said: (Mar 17, 2016)  
Because in option it was given friends not friend and before that they used 'a'.

See, A is used for singular and friends is a plural word.

So a friends means singular friends which is not appropriate.

We used "few" because it is countable or having more than one friend.
