The question asks what Rainer does not like or is unhappy about. In the scenario Klaus enters the room and asks Rainer, who has been cooking, what is for dinner. Rainer gives him the ungenerous answer “Für dich nichts” (For you, nothing). Rainer explains in the second part of the sentence: “weil du immer so spät nach Hause kommst” (because you always come home so late.). The best explanation for why Rainer is upset is therefore (A) Klaus kommt spät (Klaus comes [home] late.).
