The patient states that she does not want a hormonal form of birth control. So, the question is really asking which of the non-hormonal options is most effective. The tricky part here, I think, is that the question makes you want to not pick IUD, because many IUDs are hormonally based. However, a non-hormonal IUD, like a copper IUD, is still more effective than the other options listed.
