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.
