The correct answer is option D (store and retrieve blocks when told by clients or the name node). Because the DataNode acts as a slave in Hadoop Cluster whereas NameNode acts as a Master. DataNode stores the business data, creating, replicating, deleting, retrieving data blocks as per the instructions of Master (NameNode).
