A is obviously nonsense, as the recombination takes place on DNA ;)
B is just some sequence, so that shouldn't influence recombination. On the other hand, there are some proteins bound all the time, so maybe...
C is my leader
D this is just some repeating sequence, so why should you recombine that?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
