    In that case, we should get going.

    The answer is a, but why can c be an answer as well? Is it because of "in that case"? c seems to have full qualification, so I can't understand.

    W: Let's go on a hiking excursion tomorrow.
    M: Again? We did that a couple of weeks ago
    W:Yeah, but work has been stressful and fresh air would be invigorating.
    M:________a__________________
    a)OK, I'll research a good trail we can use
    b)You're welcome to be my travel companion
    c)In that case, we should get going.
    d)I'm sure you'll manage the climb.

    Re: In that case, we should get going.

    'We should get going' suggests now, but the suggested hike is tomorrow.

    Not a teacher

    I wouldn't use "We should get going" for some event that would not happen until tomorrow.
