Answer choices A and B

I read these two answer choices as an injunction for drafters of codes which is why I ruled them out, but the explanations read them as observations. What's the correct interpretation of these answer choices and why?

Hi, for a principle question we should read the answer choices as a general rule that, if true might help to justify the reasoning in the argument. I would put that closer to observations, but if I had to define them myself o would describe them as general rules that the judge in question might have been relying on to make their determination.
