A) This is correct. Passage A tells us generally that with historic understanding, past breaches of the principles of justice regarding property should be rectified. Passage B tells us that to do so specifically in regard to Native American lands is a "natural way of reasoning" but doesn't necessarily endorse it.

B) We can knock this one off from it telling us that A is comparing competing views, when A only provides one.

C) This one is easiest to knock off from it telling us that B regards authorities, which in this case, it doesn't really. It mentions laws and takes them to their natural progression, but doesn't cite an authority in doing so.

D) A doesn't so much state a view and provide an argument for it as it explains a view. B does explain a view, but it also provides background for a potential argument.

E) B does not attempt to undermine any view.

Does this help?

I chose B because I thought the principle of rectification is superior to principle 1 and 2. Why aren't there competing views?
