The correct answer to this question is A, Oldstyle. This Typeface was created during the 15th and 18th centuries. Old style is a Roman type of font. Their curved strokes can identify them. Today, there are hundreds to thousands of old style fonts. One includes the font, Bembo.

Mainly used in books and advertising packagings, Bembo dates back to the time of the 15th Century Italian Renaissance printer, Aldus Manutius. Another type is Sabon Next. It was designed in 2005 by Jean Francois and is a revival of the 1964 text Sabon. The modern version happens to be more versatile than its predecessor.
