B it is!

...a majority...is the right usage in this context. B also maintains parallel structure in that it says.....not coz it is right....but coz it is stonger!

you can't say reason because, it is incorrect.

So B is the only right answer.

I would've picked B also.

But D seems ok as well. Can anyone point out what's wrong with D?

D isn't parallel. "because it" should be "because of" and then rest of the sentence should follow correct form afterwards.
