should be B but it is also little wired because, imo, enjoy should be enjoying.

I will stick with C...
It is a straight thought in C.

Why A is wrong, from my point of view, is because it is needlessly changing the subject verbs and putting more of an adverbial structure...

B is wrong..

Even if you put enjoying, then enjoying will be acting as a verb and not a noun, which is needed here...

I think you need THAT to complete her point.

ANswer B. the idiom is "substitute for" therefore we need an answer choice beginning with for, such as in B , however "the importance of enjoy " sounds a bit off, because it should be enjoying. are you sure there is no typo in this sentence?

Which idiom is this sentence testing? is "prefer x to y" in which case I go with A, or is it testing "substitute x for y" then I would go B? Seems more like B though for parallel purposes but B has typo?

The term "prefer to substitute" tests which idiom? Thanks
