Premise:
In certain religions, human depict statues are considered blasphemous

Conclusion: if human depict statues are no included, no-one will be offended.

The author assumed that no-one will be offended with not including the statues in the center. In other words, statues are not important for the religions that actually uses them, so that religions will not be offended by the absence of the statues.

A. All statues may be found objectionable by some people.
Some people does not mean all people, and also we are talking about religions, not people in general.

B. Not only statues of men but also statues of women may be found to be objectionable by some people.
the argument only mentioned man and women statues, and again people is not the same as religions

C. Statues of human beings are not essential to the worship of any religion.
This is one reason why some religions would be offended. Accurate

D. The inappropriateness of statues is discussed at length in many scriptures.
out of scope

E. Some religions incorporate statues of animals in their ritual.
out of scope

Option C: Statues of human beings are not essential to the worship of any religion.

However, assumption mentions "any" religion. That can be considered extreme.

If it is considered blasphemous in certain religion = in some other religions statues of men or women is not considered blasphemous.

How will this justify that human beings are not essential to worship in any religion.

And also, argument is about certain religions considering worship of men or women as blasphemous, not if it is essential or not.

So OA should be "B".
