The correct answer is C.

OBJ-3.2: Since you are trying to protect the BIOS, utilizing secure boot is the best choice. Secure boot is a security system offered by UEFI. It is designed to prevent a computer from being hijacked by a malicious OS. Under secure boot, UEFI is configured with digital certificates from valid OS vendors. The system firmware checks the operating system boot loader using the stored certificate to ensure that the OS vendor has digitally signed it. This prevents a boot loader that has been changed by malware (or an OS installed without authorization) from being used. The TPM can also be invoked to compare hashes of key system state data (boot firmware, boot loader, and OS kernel) to ensure they have not been tampered with by a rootkit. The other options are all good security practices, but they only apply once you have already booted into the operating system. This makes them ineffective against boot sector or rootkit attacks.
