network layer is host to host,but here network layer and above are not given so better choosing A. Actually transport layer is end to end but as network is not provided so we chose A.

This question is wrong. Host-to-host layer is the Network layer (also: Source to Destination layer).

What they mean in this question is to enlist the host layers, for which Option A suits.
