Why is the answer a and not c?

I was actually stuck between these two answers but picked C because it sounded like the passage was giving an explanation. Why is C wrong?

The first paragraph describes the current approach to recusal and disqualification of judges. The second paragraph discusses the issues with this approach "it is a mistake for rules..to focus on appearance." The reason A is a better choice because the first paragraph merely tells us what the current approach - it is fairly neutral, it is not until the second paragraph the author points out potential problems - "rules provide vague guidance.." etc..

Let me know if you have any further questions.
