Check this definition of situational irony, and then take a shot at the answer.

well, i would guess A or D... but D sounds like it could be the better answer
just a guess, according to the link you gave

Although I understand why you're leaning toward D, I believe the better answer is A. It was ironic that the Californian did not help the Titanic passengers -- in fact it's still a mystery that hasn't been completely solved.
