For a nice summary of Standard Oil's history:
Looks like A and B can be true. Apparently, they controlled 85% of distribution of oil. However, when describing how they got so big, it says they were way more efficient than other companies.
I guess B wouldn't be better than A, since they didn't control ALL of the industry.
