@xDaltonLaney,

(B) is incorrect because the second paragraph discusses general ramifications of the strict view - "if [they are] right, then the persistence of every attribute and the survival of every species.." , but nature provides numerous examples that put this view into question. Nowhere does the passage suggest that this evidence is recent, on the contrary, arguably the examples of non-advantageous attributes were always present in nature.
