I didn't get 1/3 of the words in the passage but I'd go for B.

A) I can't find any statement in the passage that supports that, in fact it seems to me the contrary.
C) It says 'Flowers of all plants', when here we are talking just of poppy flowers.
D & E) One could arrive to such a conclusion after reading the passage but I think that the passage doesn't support that explicitly.

B seems to be the correct answer.
When the plant is pollinated, a substance is released that causes the wilting of the petals. Obviously, the pollinated plant continues to draw nutrients from the soil but the "released substance" OVER RIDES any effect of the nutrients. Therefore, it is fair to say that this released substance is primarily responsible for the wilting of the Poppy petals. So, if the same substance is released when the plant is cut, then the Poppy petals will suffer the same fate- wilting.

IMO B. We know that cutting a poppy releases into the flower the same substance, which causes petals to wilt.

D may be a trap choice. Argument doesn't tell anything about pollen preventing petals from absorbing nutrients carried to them by their stems.
