    (B) exposed

    I wasn't exposed to the surroundings of classical music, so I didn't have the opportunities to contact it. Therefore, I wasn't enlightened how to admire classical music.

    B is correct. Please see the changes I made to your post. Yours was very wordy and "opportunities", "contact" and "enlightened" weren't used correctly.
