Query regarding Form DS-260!

In the online DS-260 form, there is a question regarding if the applicant has ever been refused a US visa, been refused admission to the US or withdrawn their application for admission at the port of entry. My query is that the beneficiary of i130 did apply for a US visitor visa in 2016 but the consulate did not issue the visa in the sense that they did take her interview but handed her a yellow page with her passport afterwards, the passport did not have any visa denied stamp or anything though. So does she have to choose the option 'yes'? This happened 4 years ago when she was not even married to the US citizen. If she selects the yes option would it impact her i130 case negatively?

The answer is "Yes"...she was denied a visa....It will have no effect on an I-130...If the reason for denial was lack of ties to home country, then it will not affect the visa application.

Depends on the reason for denial. If it was the most common reason for a tourist visa denial (lack of sufficient ties to the home country) then this will have no impact whatsoever. 
 

If it was because she was found to be inadmissible then that’s a different story.

I-130 filed: February 5, 2016

Thank you. They did not mention a specific reason for denial. She was a student back then, she wanted to go on a visit visa to meet her relatives in US during her semester break but was denied. This denial should not affect her now i130 application if I understood it correct?

If the denial was due to lack of ties to her home, then it will have no effect......see @JFH post above.
