@Mnv, happy to help!

Answer choice (B) is incorrect because it attempts to justify the fact that "some public figures will acquire bad reputations," whereas the passage goes beyond this in making the claim that it is "impossible for anyone in the public eye to have a good reputation." Some people having a bad reputation is different from nobody having a good reputation, so (B) fails to provide the reasoning needed to make the argument in the passage flow logically.

Does that make sense? Hope it helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions!
