here they are testing you on very simple concept of "has a" relation

"R" has a "A" and "B"
"A" has a "B"

so although
"R" can access the method of "A" and "B"
and "A" can access the method available with "B"

but "B" can't invoke the methods on "A" or "R"

now as "A" has a local reference of "B" so it can't pass it to a Remote Client "R"

I think for option A) they misprinted it, because "B" never needs "A" although "R" can pass his reference for "B" to "A"

2 things here:

1) U cannot pass a local reference to a remote things.
2) The bean can't invoke methods on a client. It's the other way around!
