One can argue both C and D, but I think the better answer is C. The tribes were not so fierce, as they were non-supportive of Rome, except for trade, which they did. The friendliness of each tribe varied, depending on the chieftan, and his ties to the Celtics.
And, until AD 39, Rome was not all that interested in conquering.
I would go with Answer C as the single best answer, albeit I have issues with the "fierce" label. Gaulist tribes were much more fierce.
