A not B?

Why is the answer choice A and not B? I chose B because it follows then that if they're not shopping they they're not engaging with the free market.

@hallerae I have the answer as B on my side; did it come up wrong for you?

@tlrz63 @meisen B is correct because when we look at the prompt, it tells us that shoppers have to be able to compare prices to what the item is worth. But what if they have no way to know what an item is worth? That's what B points out; that this necessary part of the equation to a free market is missing when it comes to auto repairs.
