    Yes The correct answer I believe is C and D not A and D and cloning the VM would do nothing for capturing data.

    I’d think that VMWare is looking for C & D. However, C technically isn’t correct, it will not capture the state of the VM. It will capture data about the state of the VM, and would be the smart thing to do in the real world.
