'actually' seems redundant after 'might'. Also use of like is appropriate Hence (B)

Ivy, I guess we should give importance to idioms, but not too much importance. What I mean is we should take idioms into consideration when choosing an answer, but we should be very very careful when we decide just based on idioms.
