The SK singleton is clearly not worth 3 points - neither are CK-Q-J worth 6 because there is too great a chance of partner holding CA-X-X, with duplication of values. Pass is your best call. Hand B has just 12 points, but is a far more useful hand. Also, if partner is on lead, you want a heart lead.
