The language doesn't have to directly reference other countries in order to suggest that other countries may have similar guidelines, lathlee. Take a look at this example:
"At my school, the uniform guidelines allow for either white or blue shirts."
This language only mentions my school, but it suggests that there may be other schools with different guidelines. Here's another:
"My personal belief system dictates that I not eat meat."
This language suggests that other people may have different beliefs, wouldn't you agree?
So, in the passage, where the author says "Called "dower" in England, this grant...", and taking into account the context of the preceding sentences, this suggests that this similar systems exist in other places under different names.
As to answer B, it overstates things to call "dower" a "code of law". Maybe it's just a term of art, a bit of jargon? The passage doesn't suggest that "dower" is a code. Also, read that line again, and you will see that it has to do with surviving wives, not daughters. Answer B is off point there, too.
