Best answer

B. Regular.

With only finite positions in stack, we can have only finite configurations and these can also be modeled as states in a finite automata.

Yes, we have finite configurations in stack. We can make a DFA with same power, simply replicating each configuration with new state. And
For every DFA, We have such PDA (Simply don't use stack at all)
Hence this PDA is equivalent to DFA.
