Solution:
Option(A) is correct

‘Though’ indicates the need for opposites in the two halves of the sentence. Also, ‘life-like’ indicates realistic is the word needed.
The sentence means that, though there are no life-like meanderings, the work is presented as realistic fiction. [Note that to get the meaning out of the sentence it sometimes helps to turn the parts around.]
