A and B are idiomatic phrasal verbs. You must learn the meanings of the phrase as a unit:

turn on:

1--produce suddenly or automatically (Example: "Turn on the charm")
2-- become hostile towards
3-- cause to operate by flipping a switch (Example: "Turn on the stereo")
4-- get high, stoned, or drugged
5-- cause to be agitated, excited, or roused
6-- stimulate sexually
7-- be contingent on

turn in:

1-- make an entrance by turning from a road (Example: "Turn in after you see the gate")
2-- go to bed in order to sleep (Example: "I usually turn in at midnight")
3-- carry out (performances)
4-- to surrender someone or something to another

It doesn't really mean anything - it's just an incorrect option.
