Great question, thanks Paul!

I'm really surprised at the number of people that think the log backups would be smaller. The logs files themselves yes, which is really the only reason I can see using the bulk-logged recovery model. It seems you either need complete disaster recovery (FULL) or you don't (SIMPLE).

Good question, Paul!

In your explanation, you write that log backups are about the same size as when full recovery had been uses. This matches my expectation, but in Books Online, it says:
"The tradeoffs are bigger log backups and (...)"
ms-help://MS.SQLCC.v9/MS.SQLSVR.v9.en/udb9/html/8cfea566-8f89-4581-b30d-c53f1f2c79eb.htm

Is this a documentation bug?

Based on the explanation, the use of the term "a lot smaller" must be the reasoning for excluding answer "D". Even though http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa173529(SQL.80).aspx states.
The Bulk-Logged Recovery model provides protection against media failure combined with the best performance and minimal log space usage for certain large-scale or bulk copy operations.

Though, as pointed out, the data extents are logged, insufficent detail is logged to allow point in time recovery which would indicate that "significant" data is not written for BULK_LOGGED operations and therefore smaller log backups.
