Except indicates a negative word. This is an inference question.
So, we will have to eliminate options that claim that people interpret poems in different ways.

B. A modern reader and a nineteenth-century reader interpret one of Shakespeare's sonnets in the same way. -> wrong, the right answer

We are explicitly told that "any two readers from different cultures or eras have radically different systems of beliefs"

Therefore since meaning is based only on beliefs formed from cultures/ eras, 2 people from 2 different cultures cannot have the same beliefs and thus cannot have the same interpretation of the literature.

That one word in the argument which makes B the better answer is the word 'UNIQUE', meaning that no two persons can have the same unique result of interaction.
Option B could have been true if the word UNIQUE never existed in the argument.
