+1 for B.

(B) Robin did something that was morally wrong. --> Correct, can be inferred

(C) Moral ignorance is never excusable in the eyes of the law. --> Out Of Scope

(D) Robin’s childhood could have provided more adequate moral training even in the circumstances. --> Out Of Scope

(E) Robin could now be brought to see the moral difference between right and wrong. --> Out Of Scope

Hence, B.

Many of the answers in inference based questions, i found the answer to be wrong in which the answer says something what is already written in the paragraph given.Then how come B is the answer for this?

An inference is something that must be true. An inference is something we deduce from the given info. Not necessary that it should be new info. It can be worded differently from the info given in the argument. Option B is rephrasing the given info and hence is right.

Aditya but in many cases, in solution i have seen people negating the option saying this is already mentioned in the passage.

Using POE, only B is correct. But it should have been rephrased in a better way. It seems a cut-paste of premise.
