A. To look for food.
Explanation
The penguins leave their chicks alone all day to look for food. Penguins are known to be excellent swimmers and spend a significant amount of time in the water hunting for fish, squid, and krill. Leaving their chicks alone allows the adult penguins to dive deep into the ocean and search for food to sustain themselves and their young. This behavior ensures that the chicks are not endangered by the potentially dangerous and challenging hunting expeditions undertaken by their parents.
