B: the consumer could increase utility by purchasing more Y and less X.
C: the consumer's utility is maximized.
D: the marginal utility per dollar spent on good X equals the marginal utility per dollar spent on good Y.

Expert's answer
The fact that indifference curve is steeper than her budget line tells us that the exchange rate of the two goods differs from the rate the market asks. 
So, the right answer is B: the consumer could increase utility by purchasing more Y and less X.
