    The correct answer is B. In its 1978 University of California Regents v. Bakke decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the University of California has to admit Bakke to its medical program.

    Explanation:

    The Supreme Court ruling in University of California Regents v. Bakke declared the quota system, which set the percentage of admissions of certain races, as unconstitutional, and the policy of the University of California Davis Campus School of Medicine was found to be illegal.

    Even though Alan Bakke, a white man, outperformed the average of the students who were admitted, he was denied to enter to the University. He thought that he would be admitted if the University did not have a special admission system based in racial quotas. He applied the next year, and the situation remained the same.

    In response, Bakke filed a lawsuit in court stating that this was a reverse discrimination against white students, and his case prevailed in the state court. Therefore, the university appealed to the Supreme Court, which in turn ordered to admit Bakke and turn down the racial quotas system.
