Look at what the question asks first:

Which ... exemplifies the use of male centric language as feminists portray it?

Now, we need an example of "male centric language". So an example, where either feminine or masculine form was acceptable but the language favours the masculine form.
The passage doesn't have any examples. The correct option gives us the example of male centric language.

Look at option (D):
In their eyes, the American, and by extension any denizen of the free world, was considered a fully formed individual while the Soviet was a slave, devoid of the freedom to speak his mind.

The use of "his" is an example of male centric language. Soviet has women too. But the use of "his" for all is male-centric.

In other options, when we talk about boys, we have to use his and when we talk about women, we have to use her. So there is no bias.

GMATNinja @VeritasPrepKarishma could you please explain the relevant qualification of the phrase " although correct in principle" in the choice for Q1
. Feminists consider language, which, they argue, has a male bias and therefore devalues women, to be of great importance because of language’s effect on how we perceive reality, even though this critique, although correct in principle, is unfounded in some cases.

according to me the author doesnt admit that the critique is correct in PRINCIPLE as it is mentioned in the second paragraph that it is FRYE who believed the language is irrevocably and fundamentally dissimilar. I would like to know which phrase or idea helps us find that author agrees that the critique is CORRECT IN ITS PRINCIPLE (ie., the language is male eccentric)
