The answer is B

The probable candidates for an answer are
(B) People who are suffering from sinusitis lose their sense of smell. Mary has lost her sense of smell. Therefore Mary is suffering from sinusitis.
(C) People who have suffered from jaundice cannot become blood donors,Jean is a blood donor Therefore Jean has not suffered from jaundice.
The coloured portion of the choice (C) should be negative to match with the argument.
Thus B is the ans.
