The question is worded in a way where it states Nessus will resolve a vulnerability when Nessus is purely a network vulnerability scanner.

A B and C seem correct to me. The previous comment by cleavzz is correct though - the question implies Nessus is capable of fixing things. It's not really fixing anything, it just scans the system for issues that need to be fixed. It is just a poorly worded question. A is obvious. B and C make sense because vulnerabilities could be those that allow both control or access to sensitive data.
