E. some people who are not job applicants are probably at least a little dishonest


Conclusion is 'survey may underestimate the proportion of job applicants who are dishonest', B doesn't support the the conclusion.
If 'B' were the fact then survey would have OVERestimated the proportion of job applicants who are dishonest.

I choose 'A'

Option A is the right choice. It's certainly possible, and perhaps even likely, that a number of dishonest applicants would want to hide their dishonesty.
