So to start, answer choice C displays very very weak language with "some examples of technological innovation have been embraced by workers." Some only means at least one, so the answer choice is providing one example of technological innovation being embraced by workers. This does not do much to affect social inertia being a more powerful determinant than comfort or safety. If the conclusion said, social inertia is always a more powerful determinant than comfort or safety, then maybe that answer choice of "some" would carry more weight.
Whereas A provides us with an alternative cause to show that the phenomenon has nothing to do with social inertia, they are simply acting in their best interest in wanting to hold on to their job.
I hope this helps. Answer choices with the quantifier "some" often don't do a whole lot to our conclusion because of how weak they are unless our conclusion is very strong with an "all, always, every" quantifier. This is not to say those answers are always incorrect, but the weakness of the language makes them difficult to be correct unless our conclusion involves a 100 percent quantifier like the ones I mentioned above.
Good luck with your studies!!!
