So, this is how I interpreted the question.
the argument the practice of by paying extra for fair-trade coffee hurts farmers in general right. And we need to decide which is helpful to evaluate the economists argument by looking for reasons that would be helpful to determine whether paying extra for fair-trade coffee hurts farmers.

Hence I chose option A as the answer.
I am not able to understand why option B helps in evaluating the argument. Please help to shed some light on this! thank you.

premise- fair coffee, farmers get better price. more farmers produce extra coffee, lowering prices of non fair coffee and put prices low

assumption - farmers can not supply more coffee to fair trade price from the extra production

conclusion this practice hurts more farmers in developing nations
