According to the passage, which of the following types of nectar-feeding pollinators is likely to be an unreliable pollinator of a particular cactus flower?
A. A dietary specialist whose abundance is typically high in relation to that of the flower
B. A dietary specialist whose abundance is at times significantly lower than that of the flower
C. A dietary generalist for whom that flower’s nectar is not a preferred food but is the most consistently available food
D. A dietary generalist for whom that flower’s nectar is slightly preferred to other available foods
E. A dietary generalist that evolved from a species of dietary specialists

Is the OA really B
in B: A dietary specialist whose abundance is at times significantly lower than that of the flower
Evidence: Finally, they may be dietary specialists, but their abundance may be chronically low relative to the availability of flowers.
At times and chronically are clearly different.

In my opinion, the answer is C for the following evidence
in C: dietary generalist for whom that flower’s nectar is not a preferred food but is the most consistently available food
evidence: they can be dietary generalists whose fidelity to a particular species depends on the availability of alternative food sources


my thinking process on this question is almost the same with you.
I still wasn't entirely convinced why B is better than C.

Can someone help explain?
