Is it not true that A would not be considered incorrect?

I guess I will go with A.

B wont weaken the argument because we dont know what intention government has. All it is saying is there is not enough money to compensate for all the worng things. It can mean that some wrongs can be compensated.

OA is B. There is no explanation but here is what I can provide
Original argument says: "There is neither wealth nor wisdom enough in the world to compensate in money for all the wrongs in history". Therefore, the government is unwilling to pay anything because it says that there will never be enough money to compensate for all wrongs. B weakens the argument by saying that at least some wrong can be compensated for and this will force the government to pay at least something
