I am sure that B is correct. "Effect" is a noun. At this place in the phrase there must be a verb. That is one reason why B is wrong for sure. 

I am no native speaker though :=)

I'm not a native speaker either, but this is correct: effect is a noun, and affect is a verb.

 

E.g.

"The effect of context in this case is tremendous" - here, effect is used as a noun.

but 

"Context affects it very strongly" - a verb.
