My Explaining , to undermine something is to give a different justification or attack the reasoning.

Thus , in light of the passage , the reasons for force at the center is Black hole and cluster .

All other ans , talk about the cluster of starts , comparing other galaxy etc . ONLY B ans that there exists some other phenomenon ( might be black hole ) , but its not the cluster of starts , thus it undermines the cluster of star theory .

IMO OPtion B is the only one which is doing the job of undermining the highlighted statement in the passage.Also, this option can be reached by PoE.

I would pick B as the answer, we are looking at the answer which supports the black hole theory (and therefore undermining the cluster of stars theory)
The others are either supporting the cluster of stars theory or changing the scope of the argument

Took me a bit too long to read and analyze the question, but I'd say that the answer is B.
