The explanation is given as from k&B:
C is wrong because the return type evaluates to List<Integer>, and that can't
be assigned to a variable of type List<Number>.

how do we evaluate the type to be <Integer> as explained by the book??
and how come the option C is wrong. (Note other option are removed.)
