Eventually I realized this was the only answer that made sense, so I went back and selected it.
Is there an error in my original thought process?

Overall, I think it's a good lesson in having a lighter touch when working wrong-to-right.
To geek out a bit more, we'll have to work backwards from the fact that LSAC likes (B) to figure out why "scientifically" is acceptable here. For one, this whole question is framed as a statement by a psychologist, suggesting this is a professional discussion. But, what seals it for me is that the argument is about evaluating theories, a rather scientific undertaking. If (B) had just said "preferable" then we might be talking about how that is too broad. "We might find a theory is scientifically weak but socially preferable" we might have argued in explaining why just "preferable" is too broad since we are only talking about whether to discard a theory.
I realize I don't have a definitive answer for you here, but I hope that helps.
