    I would say B or C; most likely C because Calypso's island doesn't really have that "beauty lure" to it like the Lotus Eaters island did, but both distracted Odysseus' crew from their course. Of course, D sounds logical - but nobody said anything about Odysseus exploring Calypso's island; he got stranded there, not randomly happened upon it and decided to explore.
