I also have the same question, please provide an explanation!

Is A wrong because there is no comparison offered in that answer between the punitive approach and the author's approach? In other words, just saying that the punitive approach makes debtors more responsible isn't enough to weaken the author's position, because the author's position could also make debtors more responsible.

E, on the other hand, explicitly contrasts the punitive and the author's position.

Is this right? Thanks!
