Look for an answer which resolves both the sides of the argument.
Here it is, why shoppers wont be able to save money when they shop in either of the super markets is in contention.

So answer should be related to the kind of item purchased and their prices by the shoppers.

By POE : A and B .

B: paraphrase of the premise in the argument that the average price is 5% more in one of the markets. Dosen't resolve how shoppers are unable to save money.

A: If shoppers purchase the items is bulk from either markets the money spent will not be much different as mentioned by the statement.Hence No savings. Resolves.

Hence A.

I am still inclear.

B can also state that only if a shopper buys more than 20 items, he/she will have to pay 5%more .. isn't it?

A fits the bill

The correct answer choice must effectively convey the contrast (brought about by nevertheless), which goes to point that it is not the overall price saving that the consumer is looking for at Foodbasket but something else.

A effectively conveys that, consumers are only concerned with savings on items that they purchase most often (essential) in which case Foodbasket is cheaper. That means that even if the prices of other items at Foodbasket were to be higher than Shopperking, the consumer would still purchase at Foodbasket. They have purposely kept the sample data pointed out to have lower overall price to highlight that It is coincidental.

Hope this helps
