I think that the answer is A.
The author states two opposing theories of stability and nonstability. So there are two opposing school, the one (stability) has the referee which decides whether to allow a change or not, so i think that this referee is a principal of school of statianary view of development.
Start read from line 20 till 30 it explains who decides what.

may be because of word strong - "strong referee" mean that whenever he says is true, because like in court the last word is always after the judge. But i would anyway choose A. Is there any explanation?

unfortunately there isn't any explanation, but like u said.........that the judge's word is d final word , and a judge can give a sense of direction , maybe in that case C sounds gud(the word "athourity" in the passage attached below gives an inkling).

Courtesy: "The nonstarters were
considered the ones who wanted stability, a
(30) strong referee to give them some position in the
race, a regulative hand to calm manic specula-
tion; an authority that can call things to a halt,"

yes right, the judge has more power given by law than the school principal. So their actions (stability party) will have more effect because they will be defended by law.

I think that this is the question for one minute and like i did when i started to think too much on it and complicate everything i got the wrong answer.
