How is it possible to logically choose between A and C? What is the rationale behind this? I could argue that a prosecutor would lay the same arguments as the judge would...

Hi @Maroun,

(A) can be affirmed by seeing that the passage is written from the point of the decision-maker of the Court, which is the judge, not the prosecutor. We see in line 21 that the author writes "this court sees," and goes on to affirm the decision of the "trial court below" in line 33. This is something that a Court would rule, not a prosecutor, as in (C). Prosecutors do not speak on behalf of the court or affirm/deny lower court decisions. Hope this helps!
