Virus How would you diagnose asymptomatic genital HPV!

A 19-year-old woman had her first and only intercourse 6 months ago and is concerned whether she has genital HPV infection. Pelvic exam reveals normal genitalia.
What would be the best test for this purpose?
A. Serology for HPV IgG antibody
B. Serology for HPV IGM antibody
C. Cervical "Pap" smear
D. In situ hybridization for HPV DNA on cervical sample
