The question seems to be about the correct use of the abbreviations involved.
I reckon (B) us correct: "The Roman Empire fell to Germanic Tribes in A.D. 476."
A.D. is Latin for "The Year of Our Lord" and must come before the year, so that it reads in full, "...Germanic Tribes in the Year of Our Lord 467."
Also (C) is correct "...in Europe in 1347 C.E." which would read in full, "in Europe in 1347 Common Era." That seems correct to me.
The others are wrong because they read (A) "...in China in B.C. 500." which would read in full, "...in China in Before Christ 500" (when it should read ...in China in 500 Before Christ).
(D) is wrong because it reads "...Odyssey in about B.C.E. 750." which would read in full, "...Odyssey in about Before Common Era 750." (when it should read "Odyssey in about 750 BCE).
The only way A could be wrong is if the person setting the question has a prejudice against the abbreviation A.D. If s/he thinks it's wrong to use the Christian expression "Year of Our Lord", then they would say that was wrong and should be "...Tribes in 476 C.E." But it would not be wrong for a Christian to use that term.
