why not a??
Because 1 is max value, not -1.
Please elaborate the answer

two values are given in each option.which one to put and which one not to put.

please explain step by step
the question asks "at what x the function has a maximum value" (answer is 0) and "what is that maximum value" (answer is 1)

there are 2 parts 

part A says "value of x at which the function attains a maximum" so at x=0 ,function attains a maximum and

part B says "the maximum value of the function"  so f(0)=1-0=1

so ans should be 0,1

here in diagram clear see that,

at x=0 f(x) would be maximum which is 1

or

at x = 0,  f(x) = 1
