Because C is not mentioned and B is not a new form per se but leads to regressive listening. It is a subtle nuance but you can not infer B.

Moreover when an answer repeats the same words of the prompt such as in this case new almost never is the answer. Infer means what is stated in the prompt NOT explicitly.

Hope this helps.
