We can conclude which sentence contains an opinion by ruling out all the sentences that are just facts.  An opinion is ones specific view on a certain topic.  Looking at our sentences we can conclude that D, and B are facts. They are things that happened in the past. Facts cannot be altered as opinions can.  C, is a statement also stating what the planners did. This was their action and cannot be altered.  Sentence A, is not a fact but a view on what city planning should look like today, therefore making it an opinion. So we can conclude that our correct answer is option A. Hope this helped! If you have any other questions or would like further explanation just let me know! :)
