In which one of the following ways are the passages NOT parallel?

Option C

It didn't seem like Passage A was giving specific examples any more than Passage B. Can someone please explain this question? Thanks!

Passage A provides specific examples of perniciousness of historiographic approach on lines 5-11 "Historians require students to read scholarly monographs...they assign books with formulaic arguments", and further on lines 15-26. Passage B criticizes legal writing, but it discusses the issues in general terms rather than providing specific personal examples. I can see how it can be confusing because Passage B talks about approach to legal writing to law school, but I would still interpret it as a general statement rather than a specific observation.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
