    B) Graham is not allowed to sue Alice, having lost his right to sue her.

    Explanation:

    Time limits matter, and the law is very strict on enforcing time limits. If the statute of limitations for personal injures is X amount of years, and the injured person doesn't file a claim within that period, then it is not a valid claim.

    I guess that there are some exceptions, like if the injury was so severe that Graham was in coma for more than 2 years, then he wasn't capable of filing a claim before, but those are exceptions, not the rule.

    Since the accident happened two years and 14 days before Graham's claim, and the statute was only 2 years, then the claim is not valid.
