    In my opinion the correct answer should be “D”. I don’t know of any AMD dual core process which is compatible with VMWare HCL.

    The answer is C
    The question mentions a vCPU slection where only 1, 2, 3 or four cpu’s can be selected.

    On an Intel platform you can’t select 3 vCPU’s which can be on an AMD platform.
    So it has to be an AMD platform.
