Answers
A.  Only using the brakes.
B.  Mostly using the brakes and occasionally downshifting.
C.  Downshifting and then using the brakes.
Explanation
When approaching a long downgrade, you should shift into a lower gear then use proper braking techniques. Using the brakes alone could cause them to overheat and fail. The braking power of the engine, which is maximized by being in a lower gear, will be the principal way of controlling your speed on a downgrade.
