By pointing out a weakness in John's argument which calls into question his conclusion, I can see why (a) is right. The initial statistic by John is not enough to prove his conclusion because of the additional evidence Judy provided.

Answer choice B is very attractive, however. What would Judy's answer have to look like in order to make (B) the correct answer choice?

There could be a few ways that someone might restate evidence in different terms. One such case might be if Judy had said "in other words, only 20 percent of all car accidents were either not the driver's fault or were more than 5 miles from the driver's home." Another might be "so no more than 20% of all car accidents are the fault of someone other than the driver."
