Why shouldn't it be B as A and B are almost same?

It is option A because.

When the prosecution (which bears the evidential burden of proof) in a criminal case concludes its submission, the state's case is said to be prima facie if the evidence presented is sufficient for a conviction.

But when the evidence is not sufficient. There is an option for the defence to submit their proofs.
