Difference between B and C

These answers are so close to one another and I chose B. Passage A explicitly mentions the 'debate' over the issues stated in the body which is why I chose B; moreover, the Passage B titles are so close that I didn't differentiate them. Can you point out why C is better than B?

Hi @BrundonDavey,

Thanks for the question! So a key thing to note is that we can never have two answer choices that mean basically the same thing; one of them is going to have some detail off about it that makes it wrong. So when you think two answer choices are saying the same thing, remember, there can only be one. So we have to go through both of them and read them carefully to see if anything disqualifies one over the other.

So let’s take a look at (B) first, which suggests “Cameras in the Courtroom: Three Central Issues in the Debate” and “The Unexpected Benefits of Permitting Cameras in Court.” The correct answer choice is going to have both of these work for the purpose of the analogy. Does Cameras in the Courtroom: Three Central Issues in the Debate work? Yeah, I’d say it’s fine. But what about the Unexpected Benefits of Permitting Cameras in Court? Are we told anywhere that the benefits of jury nullification in passage B are unexpected? No, we’re not, the “unexpected” aspect comes out of nowhere. And that’s not analogous to the relationship between the passages here, and so that makes (B) wrong. (C), on the other hand, doesn’t have a similar problem, and so is the correct answer choice.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Hi, I also chose B. The problem I had with C was "dangers." It also doesn't state or imply that jury nullification is dangerous. Could you explain that please?
