    I think B abd C are the correct answers

    Statement from vmware vSphere 5 documentation center – vSphere Update Manager 5 Documentation – Working with Baselines and Baseline Groups

    Update Manager includes two default dynamic patch baselines and three upgrade baselines.

    Critical Host Patches (Predefined)

    Checks ESX/ESXi hosts for compliance with all critical patches.

    Non-Critical Host Patches (Predefined)

    Checks ESX/ESXi hosts for compliance with all optional patches.

    VMware Tools Upgrade to Match Host (Predefined)

    Checks virtual machines for compliance with the latest VMware Tools version on the host. Update Manager supports upgrading of VMware Tools for virtual machines on hosts that are running ESX/ESXi 4.0 and later.

    VM Hardware Upgrade to Match Host (Predefined)

    Checks the virtual hardware of a virtual machine for compliance with the latest version supported by the host. Update Manager supports upgrading to virtual hardware version 8.0 on hosts that are running ESXi 5.x.

    VA Upgrade to Latest (Predefined)

    Checks virtual appliance compliance with the latest released virtual appliance version.

      B and C are Correct. “Host upgrade to Latest” does not appear as a pre-defined baseline.

      Host Upgrade Baselines need to be manually created.
