The question asks where the two men are talking. It can be inferred that the scenario is an office or place of work because the man who speaks to Herr Lenz uses a formal Sie address and is surprised to see Herr Lenz still there at 6 p.m.: “Es ist schon 6 Uhr!” (It is already 6 o’clock!). The man, probably Herr Lenz’s boss, says that he will be getting an assistant — “eine Hilfskraft” — to help with additional work and tells Herr Lenz to go home and pack: “Gehen Sie nach Hause und packen Sie”. On the basis of these multiple pieces of evidence, one has to say that the men are (D) Im Büro (in an office [at work]).
