The correct response is (B). The argument includes the following two premises:


Premise: People are accountable for their own behavior.
Premise: People are not accountable for behavior they cannot control.
Here's the logical conclusion based on these two premises:


Conclusion: People can control their own behavior.
(A) would require that people never have control over the behavior of other people. Yet the argument does not provide this premise.

(C) would require that people should not be held accountable for the behavior of other people. Yet the argument does not provide this premise.

(D) is not a conclusion; (D) simply reiterates one of the argument's premises (the second sentence).

(E) is not inferable. The argument allows for the possibility that a person might not have control over another person's behavior which is subject to capital punishment.
