I think, or rather guess, the answer is A because it should be 'like' as the majority is a plural noun and we use verb with -s/-es only with singular nouns 

Aiswaria P J answered Jun 18, 2020
The collective noun 'majority' can be either singular or plural according to the sentence. Here 'majority' refers to 'majority of the individuals in the considered group'. so here the noun points the individuals and not the group as a whole. Therefore the noun is in plural form and the verb should be 'like'

I think, it should be 'A majority likes ' or 'a majority of people likes '.

It should be 'Majority of people'
