The flagella of the bacteria rotates, spinning the bacteria and propelling the bacteria move foward. That is how the flagella of the bateria moves by the cell.

But they didn't give or mentioned about a particular cell's flagella then how can we decide it moves as a propeller why not whip like motion.

Flagella are moving in under the motility part the spinning like propeller are present they help to move forward.

Many but not all bacteria exhibit motility, i.e. self-propelled motion, under appropriate circumstances.

But what of it whip like motion? i.e moves side ways. I think the answer should have been A or B not C.

Flagella facilitates movement in bacteria cell, this is enabled as it propels by spinning around.
