The earliest dating is the most accurate dating, but i don't know for sure if a) fetal heart tones at 16 wks is correct.
but the other options, primigravida has quickening a bit late (by 2 weeks ) than multigravida, so b) and c) are out.

i still go for A)

I am also confused between A and E. I am not sure how accurate the fetal heart monitoring will be. So I would go for the fundal height at 26 weeks. E
