I would go for B

it says that it is a rectangular box
with B we know that lenght is 3 inches so the width should be even smaller.

we know that the can is 4 inches in diameter so its impossible to put even one. I've been thinking if you rotate the can or if you don't insert it vertically but in diagonal but I think it's not possible... :roll:
