If there had been a "Chryse Planitia" in your homeroom, you would have remembered her.
We can nix answer (A) right off the bat, since
we know that NASA's second mission to Mars was called Viking.
(B) is incorrect as well.
The passage specifically tells us that the first landers were called Titan and Centaur,
so we know this one is full of baloney.
Choice (D) is also bogus.
The passage is actually unclear about the name of NASA's most recent mission to Mars.
Line 56, however, is very clear.
Here, the passage tells us in plain English that:
"Chryse Planitia" is the name of the region on Mars where the first Viking spacecraft landed.
Those Vikings must have been really ahead of their time. Wowie.
