@Steph,

Great question. The question says, "Which one of the following is a
principle that can be most reasonably considered to underlie the
reasoning in both of the passages?"

In reading both of the passages, we see that both of them use the word
"problematic" to discuss the various difficulties that the Roma face.
And, because these difficulties that the Roma face exist because
they're not recognized as legitimate minority groups by certain
governments, then a lack of such recognition is detrimental for the
Roma's interests.

In looking at the answer choices, (B) says, "A minority group’s not
being officially recognized as such by the government that has
jurisdiction over it can be detrimental to the group’s interests."

As mentioned above, this is a principle that we see presented in both
of the passages, so (B) is our correct answer.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any more questions!
