B.
You do not ever need to rotate access keys for AWS IAM Roles, nor AWS IAM Users.

C.
None of the other statements are true.

D.
You do not ever need to rotate access keys for AWS IAM Roles.

Explanation:
IAM Role Access Keys are auto-rotated by AWS on your behalf; you do not need to rotate them. The application is
granted the permissions for the actions and resources that you’ve defined for the role through the security credentials
associated with the role. These security credentials are temporary and we rotate them automatically. We make new
credentials available at least five minutes prior to the expiration of the old credentials.
