    I think it is the Interactivly…not the autodeploy option.

    Install ESXi Interactively
    You use the ESXi CD/DVD or a USB flash drive to install the ESXi software onto a SAS, SATA, SCSI hard drive, or USB drive.

    ESXi Embedded must not be on the host. ESXi Installable and ESXi Embedded cannot exist on the same host.

    Prerequisites
    ■ You must have the ESXi installer ISO in one of the following locations:

    ■ On CD or DVD. If you do not have the installation CD/DVD, you can create one. See Download and Burn the ESXi Installer ISO Image to a CD or DVD

    ■ On a USB flash drive. See Format a USB Flash Drive to Boot the ESXi Installation or Upgrade.

    Note
    You can also PXE boot the ESXi installer to launch an interactive installation or a scripted installation. See PXE Booting the ESXi Installer.

    Interactive installations are recommended for small deployments of fewer than five hosts. You boot the installer from a CD or DVD, from a bootable USB device, or by PXE booting the installer from a location on the network, then follow the prompts in the installation wizard to install ESXi to disk.

    the correct answer is A and D.

      They aren’t asking about accessing the installation script file, they’re asking about accessing the installation binaries.
