This is not a question that can really have an obectively correct answer.  I would suggest that you look for what your textbook says is the correct answer.  The impacts of the counterculture can certainly be debated and at least two of these answers could be seen as correct.

I would argue that the best answer is B.  I would argue that the counterculture had a greater impact on American society than on the political process.  I would argue that the counterculture helped make Americans rethink things like the role of women and minorities in society.  It helped bring about the "sexual revolution" that has impacted US culture.  These changes, I would argue, are greater than its impact on the political system.
