    This Q. is wrong in it’s statement and therefor wrong in the answers indicated as correct.
    There is no such thing a an acceptance level VMwareSupported.
    The levels defind for the product are:
    VMwareCertified
    VMwareAccepted
    PartnerSupported
    CommunitySupported

    So the Q. should state:
    “The image profile acceptance level is set to PartnerSupported.”

    The the correct answers would be:
    VMwareCertified
    VMwareAccepted
    PartnerSupported

    The acceptance level set on the host is the minimum acceptance level software should be classified with in order to be accepted (duh) onto the host, when installed.
