Option A is the correct answer.  Young people are much more likely than older people to be in favor of gay rights, including the right to same sex marriage.  As evidence that this is true, look at the link below.  There, we see a chart showing us how attitudes towards gay marriage among people of each generation have changed over time.  The chart shows us that people of all ages have increased their support for gay marriage since the beginning of this century.  However, it also shows that every generation is more likely to support gay marriage than the generation before it.  There is a wide gap in the attitude of people born after 1981 (70% favor gay marriage) and those born between 1928 and 1945 (39% are in favor).  This clearly shows that Option A is the right answer.
