Should be B. It says, there are people who are familiar with intellectual stimulation and physical pleasure but they enjoy the latter more.This contradicts the question stem which says that humans cannot be made happy by anything that does not involve gratification of certain faculties.

+1 B

It is a “weaken” type question

Premise - Human beings have cognitive faculties that are superior to those of other animals
Conclusion - Once humans become aware of these, they cannot be made happy by anything that does not involve gratification of these faculties

Anything that weakens the conclusion is our answer

b) Many people familiar both with intellectual stimulation and with physical pleasures enjoy the latter more. (Correct answer, it shows physical pleasure gives more gratification than cognitive i.e. intellectual stimulation)
