You need to pay attention to the difference between cursors and variables. Answer B was "Release the resources from a cursor", so it is correct. The answer would not have been correct if you had used variable instead of cursor.

Even the article you referenced says, "DEALLOCATE removes the association between a cursor and the cursor name or cursor variable. If a name or variable is the last one referencing the cursor, the cursor is deallocated and any resources used by the cursor are freed."

The following link:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190028.aspx
also says "The DEALLOCATE statement completely frees all resources allocated to the cursor, including the cursor name."

This is the second reference that supports answer B as being the correct answer.
