    Doesn't the 13C spectrum show 5, not 4 peaks? Therefore, wouldn't the answer be E and not B?

    The peak at 0 doesn't count! And don't ask me why because I don't know the reason behind it, but I'm absolutely positively sure it doesn't count lol.

    Yep. I don't have the destroyer with me right now but for HNMR/CNMR, the peak at 0 is the solvent. All of the chemical shifts are reported relative to it.
