Well, A is the first letter in the alphabet, and B is the second.
Ha! YOU JUST GOT DAD-JOKED.
No, they are super similar. The problem with (A)—and I think you only see this clearly in comparison to (B)—is that the argument isn't based on the lack of evidence against the shoe factory. Instead, it's built on a lack of evidence for the courthouse.
Another way of seeing it is that there's not necessarily a lack of evidence against the shoe factory; we don't have any mention of any evidence either for or against the shoe factory.
Instead, we have based our argument on the fact that the council members (the "advocates of an opposing claim") have not given evidence to support their claim.
For (C) to be correct, we'd need the author to make some attack on the proponents. She'd have to say something like, "The proponents say [X], but they are stupid and they have bad haircuts."
Here, the author hasn't attacked them in any way, so (C) cannot be correct.
