B

B is the correct answer. A design principle called the Face-ism ratio suggests that humans interpret more about a persons intelligence, character, and personality when viewing a picture where the face dominates the image. The more the face fills the space in a photo, the higher the face-ism ratio. The smaller a face gets in a photo, the more humans tend to focus on physical characteristics and sensuality. Considering the content of the article and the magazine, an image with a high face-ism ratio would be best.
