Oh got it!
Is the answer for 6 A?

For #6, B is correct.
Creon punished and eventually killed Antigone BECAUSE she had given her brother burial rites. B makes no sense at all in this play.

It's not suppose to make sense, because the question is which event did NOT take place. So, yes, the answer is B. B did not take place.
