Default Informed Consent Psych Question


Can someone please help with this and please give an explanation - I hate missing these "easy questions"

My immediate thought was A - my thinking if PT says no, then no means no

but then of course PT already gave Consent 4 days prior with her husband, and shes only backing out now bc of the Narcotic, thus she no longer has DMC (Decision Making Capacity) but bc she already gave IC with all of DUMV(Disclosure, Understanding, Mental Capacity, Voluntariness) fulfilled, then maybe D is correct to.

Thank you in advance for any help
