legacies:anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor

In that sense option c is also true since the starting of the passage says"One of the legacies of the Roman legions was discipline"

The whole passage says about discipline and the line "Discipline on the battlefield kept units obedient, intact and fighting, even when the odds and conditions were against them" means Option A best sums up the meaning of the passage.

Option C can be inferred from the first sentence, but is not the main objective of the passage.

Options B and D cannot be inferred from the given passage.

Correct Option: A.
