B) It makes the air come out with enough force to blow out the candle flames.
C)The air forms a blanket over the candles and pushes the candle flames down.

    Three things cause fire: fuel, oxygen, and heat. Remove one, the candle goes out.

    By blowing in a constricted stream, you remove the heat from the wick, and it cools, and the fire is out. B is the best answer, but it is not as good as the above description.
