That's the attractive trap of that answer choice, Agent00729! The problem with that view is that it overlooks that "benefits" and "compensation" are not interchangeable terms. There are some benefits that do not necessarily fall under the heading of "compensation," except perhaps indirectly. Perhaps benefits include access to the faculty lounge? Permission to use computer facilities to conduct research? A parking space? Collective bargaining rights?
The other problem with that answer is that it never addresses the claim in the last sentence of the stimulus about whether Graduate Assistants would have their jobs in the first place. The author is claiming that they are different from university employees because they are only given their jobs to help them fund their educations, and answer B doesn't address that.
