Option B can have lone pairs since if there are five electron regions with three lone pairs, the lone pairs will reside in the equatorial plane which would create a linear structure. Additionally, if there were 6 electron regions with four lone pairs, the resulting structure will also be linear. Since those two cases exist, there can be lone pairs in the structure.
