Correct Answer - Option 2 : Both(A) and (B)

Option 2, Both (A) and (B).

The passage mentions that a city with walls covered with writings and paintings looks bizarre and strict rules must be enforced prohibiting people from painting and writing on the walls.

From what has been supplied it can be assumed that a city with walls having paintings and writings is not required therefore we intend to enforce laws so that people are discouraged from painting and writing on the walls. Therefore statement A can be assumed.

From what has been shared it can also be assumed that people will abide by the rule. It is, therefore, we expect the enforcement of the rules. Therefore, statement B can also be assumed.

But from what has been supplied it cannot be assumed that the city looks beautiful and better with walls decorated with paintings and writings. Therefore statement C cannot be assumed.

Hence, option 2  is correct.
