Answer: A. situational irony.

Situational irony is the irony of something happening, totally different from just what was expected. A good example of situational irony is the burning down of a fire station. Situational irony is used oftentimes by writers in order to convey a particular message to the audience; writers use situational irony with the purpose of creating a surprise twist or in the communication of a moral.
