For Q1.
This is a good question. The second agile principle says,
"Welcome Change in requirements, even late in development. Agile process harness change for CUSTOMER's COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE".

To ensure success business representatives need to prioritize the work considering Value proposition.
During execution if a new work is added to fully loaded list, then team can have dilemma. It is business need to
give direction by considering value of each item in the backlog.


For Q2

In my opinion this question should be better framed.
"Intervene" has a meaning of "Get Involved". If he intervenes for fixing the non-productive argument it the best thing. Non-productive team arguments are distractions, as an agile leader should REMOVE those discussions. If the author has same opinion then B is correct. Because the removing impediments is best option than doing admin. work for the team.
