This is a must be true principle question, which requires us to find what description matches what we saw in the passages. I'd approach this problem in two steps. First, we need to know what the view of detective fiction was in passage (A). The key aspect in passage (A) is the interaction between the reader and the text. Borges in particular thought about the suspicions of the reader. We can use this information to eliminate answer choices (A), (B), and (E) which do not address the interaction between reader and text at all.
Moving into the second step is to look to the principle described in passage (B). Passage (B) states that we can differentiate genres in literature by how the reader interacts with the text. Great! This seems to go along with Borges views. We can combine these views by saying that detective fiction can be differentiated by the way in which the reader interacts with the text---suspiciously per Passage A.
Turning to our last two answer choices we see that answer choice (C) is a much better match for what we need than answer choice (D). Answer choice (D) describes a possible way the reader could interact, but it doesn't match what we learned from Passage A. Therefore, answer choice (C) is our best choice.
As an aside, we'll be able to provide more useful assistance the more information you can give us about what you were thinking. If you let us know what you were tempted by, or how you approached it, we can give guidance about your process and errors (if any).
