Correct option is
B

It radiates same quantity of heat as it receives from the surroundings

Since the body has the same temperature as that of surrounding, it is in thermal equilibrium with the surroundings.
So, there is no net exchange of heat.
So, amount of heat radiated = amount of heat received from the surroundings.
