U world says the same thing as Kaplan; its probably safe to stick with the question banks. FA needs that to be corrected i guess.

uw also says preservation of axons, and i think that would be correct, coz its relapsing and remitting course in MS, so only myelin would be involved.

typically it is preserved axon in acut plaques .
but in chronic plaques it will loss the axon.
to be in the safe side in the exam go for preserved axon

Default F.A. 2017 - P. 493 (neurolopathology)

F.A. 2017 - P. 493 - corrected this by mentioning "Periventricular plaques A (areas of oligodendrocyte loss and reactive gliosis) with preservation of axons."
