    C is correct

    When an existing ESX/ESXi 4.x installation is detected, the ESXi Installer will prompt to both migrate (upgrade) the host and preserve the existing VMFS datastore, or to do a fresh install (with options to preserve or overwrite the VMFS datastore). As there is no vm exists so Install ESXi and overwrite the VMFS datastore

    During an interactive upgrade, the only options you have are:
    -Upgrade ESXi, preserve VMFS datastore
    -Install ESXi, preserve VMFS datastore
    -Install ESXi, overwrite VMFS datastore

    Since the question states that “The requirement is to upgrade to VMFS5.” and there are no other VMs on the datastore, the only single step option you have is “C. Install ESXi and overwrite the VMFS datastore”

    In the real world you would most likely choose the option to upgrade so you don’t lose your configuration, and then delete the datastore and recreate it as VMFS5, but that answer is not given to us as an option.
