But clinging to this ideology ( discussed in para1) also prevented these women from even attempting to gain true political power because it implied a moral purity that precluded participation in the messy world of partisan politics.

I hope now B is clear winner.

Other factor -> inferred answers are loosely worded and generally extremes are not the correct choice -> All, never, always, only etc...

Quote:
4. It can be inferred from the passage that the author believes which of the following about women’s relationship to politics in the nineteenth-century United States?

(A) social activism was the best path to political power for women.

(B) had women wished to seek true political power they would have had to abandon the ideology of female benevolence.

(C) women’s desire for true political power was the primary cause of their eventual abandonment of the ideology of female benevolence.

(D) only women in positions of authority in their communities exercised political influence indirectly through men.

(E) most men believed that they were protecting women by excluding them from politics.

Choice (C) implies that the women DID abandon the idealogy of female benevolence.

On the other hand, choice (B) describes a hypothetical situation: IF the women had wanted to seek true political power, then they would have needed to abandon the idealogy. Choice (B) does not suggest that they ACTUALLY abandoned the ideology.
