It depends on your perspective.
You can hate things that are clearly evil (war, senseless murder, deadly diseases, racism, etc.), and those feelings are essentially the opposite of love.
You can also have loved someone, and due to circumstances, now feel that you "hate" them - but that hate is based on the fact that you still have some love for them, so in that sense, apathy would be the opposite of love OR hate (no feelings vs. strong feelings).
I voted B, because I assume you were talking about relationships, but you really need to define a context in order to have a correct answer.2

Loving and hating both require a lot of emotional commitment and energy. The opposite of caring deeply about someone is to not care at all - that is most definitely apathy.1
