The correct answer is option B
While caring for a person who is having a seizure, clear all nearby hard and sharp objects that might cause injury to the person. They should be given enough room and given assistant while walking in order to avoid bumping into sharp objects.

Other options are wrong because a patient should not be held when having a seizure; they should be freed and after the seizure, turned to their sides to aid free breathing.

Despite what you have heard, it is not advisable to put anything in their mouth during the seizure it can be dangerous for the patient, as they can sustain injuries to their teeth or jaw in the process.
