    The key in here is that the attack is time specific.
    “B.Ransomware”, “C.Polymorphic malware” and “D.Armored virus” once unleashed, will attack/spread without any consideration at what time of the day it is.

    The only one that is time specific in here is “A- Botnet”, as the zombies are clearly responding to the manual commands of the master which are being done during off peak hours, probably in an attempt to avoid detection

    A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data, send spam, and allows the attacker to access the device and its connection. The owner can control the botnet using command and control (C&C) software.
    The word “botnet” is a combination of the words “robot” and “network”. The term is usually used with a negative or malicious connotation.
