    Wow - yet another command I'd not heard of, which I had to research!

    I'll therefore go for [HIDE]B[/HIDE]

    You all got it. The right answer is "B". The -a option sets the file attribute so that it can only be appended. The plus sign ( + ) adds the attribute. A minus sign ( - ) would remove it.
