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:
The below explination 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 oposite results.

    I could be wrong but if this question is really on the test (NFS vs VMFS) I would tend to take a closer look at the word delete. Dictonary.com states delete means to strike out or remove. So if the question states: What are two consequences of deleting an NFS datastore..Aka unmount the answer would be as you state C and D.
