    I don't like any of the answers but the best of the choices I think is b. I think the most logical answer is that the SIZE of the oceans means it can rain a lot, evaporate a lot, gain fresh water from streams (a lot) but the huge size means the level changes little.

    B)Water is constantly evaporating over the ocean surface especially at the equator due to no seasonal loss in sun intensity.
