Referring to the dangerous cliffs that were located near to the back of their new home, the boys’ mother advised that they not ought to play close to them.

a) advised that they not ought to play --> The correct idiom usage is ought not to. Hence, incorrect

b) was advising that they ought to not play --> It means she was referring to and advising at the same time. Ideally, she referred to that to advise something.

c) advised they might not ought to play --> that is missing that and might is not required here.

d) said advisably that they ought not playing --> Lol, funny way to say said advisably. We can directly use advised. + Ought to is the correct idiom

e) advised that they ought not to play
