    But I am wondering why A is impossible in this sentence. Could you please explain it?

    Re: Which is correct,please?

    People are unlikely to accept these suggestions.
    It is unlikely that people will accept ...
    It is impossible (for people) to accept ...
    These suggestions are impossible/not possible (for people) to accept.


    The first three of those are fine; the fourth is, in my opinion, possible. Yours is not.
