But "Army" is also used as "plural" in grammar. So, why don't we consider "Army" as "Plural" in this SC? I appreciate your help sir.
Thanks__

Well, even if you think that "army" is plural in general, the non-underlined portion tells us that "army" is singular in this sentence! Right after the comma, we have "it had provisions...". That singular pronoun "it" must refer to "army", so we know that army is singular.

We can't refer to army with a plural pronoun in one part of the sentence and then with a singular pronoun in another part, so (A), (B), and (C) are out.
