This is an old thread, but I'll answer it anyway. The answer is C because the default gateway is currently configured (incorrectly) to be the broadcast address for that subnet. That means the client can't get out to any network resources. It's sending it's requests as a broadcast to its fellow clients instead of the true gateway, which would usually be the .1 address in this subnet configuration.
