But when I replied you yesterday I forgot to change the original 'c' to the 'b' that I sent you. The following are the original choices:
What does the writer want to prove with Cromwell's example?
a. Everybody is an apple-polisher.
b. Cromwell was not a good apple-polisher.
c. There are people who don't like being apple-polished.
d. George Fox and his Ouaker group were not apple-apolishers.
May I say both 'a' and 'b' are correct?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you in advance.

Sorry again for the inconvenience I brought you.

There's a choice 'c'?

b. There are people who don't like being apple-polished.
I'd choose 'b'. Choice 'a' is out. Evidence: Cromwell was unable to sway the opinions of certain people, specifically those who did not like being apple-polished.

All the best,
