I got this question right, but I was deliberating between A and C for some time. Why exactly is A wrong? I eliminated it because I thought Julia more than "strongly questions" Marie's conclusion...she rejects it by saying "Nonsense! ...I am not morally entitled..." But I am confused by the second part of the answer choice (A) that says "while accepting that principle."

Thank you!

Answer choice (A) states that Julia accepts the principle offered by Marie. This is the opposite of what Julia does. Julia abstracts the reasoning Marie gives to show how in a separate situation, Marie would have to disagree with the principle - it is not morally wrong to take something if you do not trick, threaten, or physically force someone - that she originally used.
