Question why B cell type lymphoma is more common than T cell type lymphoma?

Our mock up end-year exam has a very strange question:
why B cell type lymphoma is more common than T cell type lymphoma?
I looked everywhere and could not find the answer to it. Anyone knows?

I don't know the answer but am just guessing here

Probably because B cells are earlier in the differentiation line so they are more likely to turn malignant!
