The point of this is to demonstrate that a divine purpose in revealing an intelligent creation is directly opposed to a divine purpose of encouragement to understand it. A God attempting both at the same time would be catastrophically inconsistent with itself and would fail to provide to us the significance we need.
I guess, if I understand you correctly, my answer as a combination is wrong. However, I would argue that a combination is actually required for the current situation we all live in (a good yet bad world - I'll assume that you are able to see that there are elements of both things that are good and bad in this world).
A. Man alone controls his destiny, God just arranged for the 'training', the curious and intelligent nature of humans.
B. God made and controls absolutely everything. (He even does our TPS reporting, and fills out our tax returns for us!)
A. means that we do our own thing regardless of what God may say about it, but the process is entirely doomed to fail because no proper training can come about for the creation, except from the creator.
B. means that the world would be perfect, and everything is done according to the absolute perfect standard he uses. However, this means that our input into anything is removed (Bob doesn't get a say in on the TPS).
A means that we are entirely on our own, B means we have no free will. A means we are doomed to destroy ourselves, and God is a tyrant sitting idly by. B means we attain perfection only because we have nothing to do with it, we are robots under the tyrant God.
A combination of A and B will mean that A. perfection can be attained, while B. we can be a part of it.
In the original question, training Bob would be in the middle, while telling Bob to get lost and do his own work would be the other side. So
A. Tell Bob to $%&@ off and stop being lazy.
B. Offer to help Bob and give him training to do better.
C. Do Bob's work.
