no mention- primary / secondary.
(B) Color is the most important factor in determining which toys an infant will prefer to play with.
strong word- Most (not stated in the passage also).
(C) Individual infants do now have strong preferences for one particular bright color over other bright colors.
no mention.
(D) The sales of toys of infants reflect the preferences of infants in at least one respect.
there might be more parameters but at least one parameter / preference of infants is taken care of.
Money is other which is buyer's preference, not infants'.
correct.

may be. no mention.
