The answer is A.

"QSO alerting assistance of any kind (this includes, but is not
limited to, packet, local or remote Skimmer and/or Skimmer-like
technology, Internet) places the entrant in the Single Operator
Assisted category."

RBN is a network of remote skimmers and therefore is therefore allowed
under the rules.
