The passage says "[...] he does rightly see Jackson's tenure as the culmination of the acceptance of party, commerce and individualism".
Therefore, (A) "Many supporters resisted the commercialization [...]" it's clearly in contrast with the stated in the passage.

B says "Protest against the corrupt and partisan nature of political parties in the United States subsided during Jackson's presidency", and the passage says "non-partisanship lost its relevance, [...] party gained a new legitimacy", that is, B is supporting the passage IMO.

As per my understanding all other 4 statements supports author's claim that "Jackson's tenure as the culmination of the acceptance of party, commerce and individualism"

A alone states that Jackson had faced resistance from his own supporters on commerialization which is not support the author's claim hence A

A. least supports the author's argument about commerce because if the supporters of jackson did resist the commercialization then it would go against the author's idea that it was in jackson's presidency when commercialization and individualism became more accepted.

I picked C. because it seems completely out of scope. OA is A though. Maybe because C doesn't matter one way or the other but A would actually contradict the author?
