Yes it's B. Simple and has no ambiguity at all.

Can some explain why not E...Is flatly not an adverb that modifies pack as verb.

Good going guys ... B it should be ...right flatly is an adverb but so is flat ( used as an adverb) ... flatly means in an unqualified manner ..which doesn't fit here ... thus B only .. clear and concise ..!!
