An option may refer to any of the following:

1. An option is a choice presented to a user. For example, when closing a program, you may be prompted to save any open files that have unsaved changes. Clicking "Yes" would save the file, then close the program; clicking "No" would close the program, without saving the files, and your changes would be discarded.

HTML option tag

2. With HTML (hypertext markup language), the <option> tag is used to designate a list item in the <optgroup>, <datalist>, or <select> elements.

3. Option is a short way of saying Option key.
