Yes, it's the right answer because "utilitarian tenacity" by splitting this utilitarian = usefulness & tenacity = qualitative, so first of all we must check the first option, from this author mentioned it is affordable so option one is wrong and the remaining options are not at all relevant to the question.

From this conclusion, we can easily mark option B.

Yes, it's B because here given "utilitarian tenacity" = utilitarian + tenacity means talking about the usefulness and potentiality of the thing.
