I am still not sure if I understood why A is wrong and B is right.

A - She verbally agreed to pay with the rest of the family. Meaning she and her family together agreed to pay off the cost of her studies. What is wrong here? There are so many families who financially support a student in paying off education cost. It is quite possible that her family only consists of her mom and dad, and it is not abnormal to have a joint account among the three to pay off education cost. I do not see any logical, grammatical or meaning flaw here. Besides, such cases practically happen in real life.

B - She agreed with the rest of the family to pay. The sentence implies that the agreement (to pay by herself) was with the rest of the family. Why exactly would the outside party who is making the remark "Our understanding was that she would continue to cover the costs of studies...... " would ever care whether she agreed with the rest of her family OR she agreed just by herself to pay? Besides, what exactly is the need to make that agreement "with the rest of her family" when the family has absolutely no role to play in making the payment??? The meaning is not coming out clearly with this option.

Please clearly explain:
1. Why she needs to make the agreement with the rest of her family when family has not role to play in the payment?
2. Why would the outside party who is making the comment "Our understanding was that she would continue to cover the costs of studies...." care whether she agreed just by herself or with the rest of her family to make the payment when the family has no responsibility to pay? Also, the agreement was verbal. So rest of the family were not co-signers or witnesses. The significance of "Rest of the family" is not coming out clearly.
3. What is wrong in option A in the way explained above?

I think this is a poor-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate.
