Usually A.
If my knives weren't shit, and I could afford a nice wooden block, i'd attempt C

"Chopping" is C by definition - it's how I break apart large bits of meat, and tackle hard root veggies.

For general slicing/dicing, it's either A or the reverse direction (depends on what I'm cutting - green onions seem to need the full length of the blade to cut cleanly, so I go backward on those).

so... D? Depends on what's happening and what knife/cleaver/medieval battle axe I need for the job.

You have taught me a new thing, you have my gratitude.

well, B looks like it would fit the definition too, but I can't imagine keeping the blade parallel like that.

use the curvature of the blade to rock back and forth, keeping contact with the cutting board at all ties.

I'm sure there's actual names for the different methods, but the parallel one was supposed to be the sort of thing you might do to shave thin slices with a chinese cleaver or other flat edged blade.

ok, makes sense... that was about all I could come up with too, and it always came up way more careful than A or C.

I do find that when I do something like this, it's a bit more like A, but that's probably because I use "chef" knives way more often than cleavers.

where did you get that image? I think I made it 2 years ago

I learned how to chop from that youtube video of marie making pasta

I saved it from a /ck/ thread a long time ago. :)
