Thanks for the question! It might help, here, to pre-phrase for ourselves the main point (or, really, a possible title for) each passage, so we can compare each answer choice. For Passage A, it might be something like, "In some situations, independent research might be ok to help trial judges." For Passage B, it would be, "Appellate courts should never, ever conduct independent research." Answer B kind of gets at the same thing; salt might be ok for one group, but it's really bad for another group. C doesn't fit because neither of our original passages is debunking potential danger of independent research; Passage A might be more inconclusive, but Passage B is making a very strong argument that the danger is very, very real!
