B. I might be wrong, but Dolph Lundgren has some advanced degree. If I wrong, it is because Lundgren has a degree in something more difficult.

Should be C, 210°F, 98.9°C . Points of change of state (solid to liquid to gas and vice-versa) don't just depend on temperature, but on air pressure as well. Higher elevations mean lower pressure, thus lower points, that's why some recipes list different cooking temperatures and/or times for high elevations. And knowing that is vital when mountain climbing.
