Help!Doubt on SimpleTagSupport

I met with the following question in a book:
Assume the tag handler for a ex:sim tag extends SimpleTagSupport. In what way can scriptlet code be used in the body of ex:sim?
A. Scriptlet is illegal in the body of ex:sim.
B. set the body-content to JSP in the body of the TLD.
The key given by the book is A. But I think the correct key is B. Please give your answers and explainations. Thanks a lot in advance!!!

We cant use scriptlet in the body of the Simple Tag.
<body-content> tag of the TLD can only have values of empty or scriptless.
Option "A" is correct.
