Thumbs up Parallel Wiring Diagram correct?

Hi all, I'm trying to wire 4 light fixtures together to one switch, in parallel, as I read that's the best way to do it. Please tell me if either option in the image shown will work, or only option B, which is the one I've seen noted online. Thank you.

Because of box fill B is the better choice.

To make it simpler, use each light junction box as a connection point. Wh to Wh, Bk to Bk, and ground to ground.
