    Answer A is not clear in its meaning:

    To the owner, the architect is responsible for the consultant’s work per  B101, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect.

    To the architect, the consultant is responsible for the consultant’s work per C401, Standard Form of Agreement Between Architect and Consultant.

    So, the owner will seek damages from the architect for consultant’s errors, and the architect can sue the consultant to recover his loss for what he has to pay the owner for the consultant’s mistakes.
