Solution

The correct option is A A friend in need is a friend indeed
Option E is the best proverb that suits the given context because 'a friend in need is a friend indeed' means a person who helps at a difficult time is a person who you can really rely on.
'Facts are stubborn things' could mean that one cannot avoid the truth, even when it is not what we want to hear or express.
'Experience is the mother of wisdom' means that most wisdom is gained by experiencing different things over time.
'Live and learn' is used to say that one has learned something from an experience that is surprising and usually unpleasant.
'Everything is good in its season' means that everything has an appropriate time.
Options A, B, C and D are incorrect because none of these proverbs suits the given context.
