What are two consequences of deleting an NFS datastore from an ESXi host?

What are two consequences of deleting an NFS datastore from an ESXi host? (Choose two)

A.
The datastore is removed from all connected ESX/ESXi hosts

B.
The datastore and all virtual machines are removed from the storage device

C.
The datastore and all virtual machines remain on the storage device

D.
The datastore only removed from that specific ESX/ESXi host.

Explanation:
Similar as q79 exB

The below explanation is for deleting VMFS, as far as I know you can’t delete NFS datastores from an ESXi host. You can unmount it which only removes it from that single host and the VM’s would still remain on the datastore. Therefore The correct answers should be:

The datastore and all virtual machines remain on the storage device
and
The datastore only removed from that specific ESX/ESXi host.

I have copied this exact question into this dump, (Q160) changing the NFS to VMFS, of course then having the opposite results.

Delete VMFS Datastores
You can delete any type of VMFS datastore, including copies that you have mounted without resignaturing. When you delete a datastore, it is destroyed and disappears from all hosts that have access to the datastore.
NOTE The datastore delete operation permanently deletes all files associated with virtual machines on the datastore.
