The word "preferences" in A made me eliminate that choice. Can someone please explain?

I also am curious why the answer is A like the two other posts. Can someone please help

Hi all, there's another thread on this question that also addresses support for A, but to briefly recap it, if we look at the first paragraph, we see the example of sacrificing one for the sake of appeasing a mob, which the utilitarian would have to agree with. Rawls, on the other hand, is opposed to this (see line 14). Hope this helps.
