Correct option is B)

We need to choose the option that does NOT hold true for the given passage. Hence, Option B is chosen; it is a false statement as proved by the line: "Games lose their zest... if the result is a foregone conclusion." (foregone conclusion means 'a result that can be predicted easily)
Option A is not chosen because it is true. This is proved by the line: "Life indeed would be dull if there were no difficulties."
Option B is not chosen because the line holds true and "Games lose their zest if there is no real struggle..." proves it.
Option D is also not chosen; it is true, proved by the line: "Both the winner and the loser enjoy a game most when it is closely contested to the end."
