I agree, I stumbled into the same problem. But, other answer choices were clearly wrong and hence went with (B).

Supposedly, the "A large and increasingly influential sector of publishing," should refer to the university-press rather than the books. However, this answer choice was the closest. I am assuming this is from 1000 SC.
