Hmm, I guess. Given that the question specifically asks about how to write /k g t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ before front vowels, though, I assumed that option b was proposing, for example, /ki gi t͡ʃi d͡ʒi/ <ci~qui gi~gui chi~ci ji~gi>. It does make more sense that it's actually proposing, for example, /ki ku gi gu t͡ʃi t͡ʃu d͡ʒi d͡ʒu/ <qui cu gui gu ci chu gi ju>. However, if that's the case, then why does the question only ask about how to write those sounds before front vowels?

Anyway, assuming that's correct, I've changed my suggestion.

These are the sound changes of Proto-Brettaniot so far.
Spoiler:
/ɪ ʊ/ > /i o/
/skʲ/ > /ʃ/
/kkʲ kʲ gʲ/ > /t͡ʃ t͡ʃ j~d͡ʒ/
/Cs Ct/ > /jʃ jt͡ʃ/
/tʲ dʲ/ > /t͡s d͡z/
/i u e o ɛ ɔ a/ > /i u ei ou iə uə æ~iə/ | in open syllables
/p b t d k g/ > /b v d ð g ɣ/ | between vowels
/u o ou ɔ/ > /y u u o/
/i u e o ɛ ɔ a/ > /i u ə o ə o ə/ | unstressed
/j/ > /d͡ʒ/ | word-initially
/jj/ > /d͡ʒ/ | in medial position
/mn kn gn nj/ > /ɲ/
/pl tl kl gl lj/ > /ʎ/
And here's the phonology with aspects of the orthography that have already been decided on.
Spoiler:
/m n ɲ/ - <m n ?>
/p b t d k g/ - <p b t d c~qu g~gu>
/t͡s d͡z t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ - <? ? ch~c j~g>
/f v ð s z ʃ ɣ/ - <f v dh s~ss s sci~sc gh>
/r l ʎ j w/ - <r l ? i~? u~?>
/i y u e ə o ɛ a/
/ei iə uə æ~iə/

They could occur in consonant clusters that formed in native words as well as loan words. Here are some examples.
  • acuerna /əkwernə/ "squirrel" from Old English ācweorna
  • Caduallo /kadwalu/, a male name from Proto-Brythonic *Kadwallọn
  • cambiare /kambjərə/ "to change" from Latin cambiāre
  • Conual~Counual~Cunual /kunwəl/, a male name from British Vulgar Latin Cunouali and from Proto-Brythonic *Kunowal (This word has three different spellings since we haven't voted on how /u/ should be written yet.)
  • uest~ƿest /west/ "west" from Old English west (This word has two different spellings since we haven't voted on how initial /w/ should be written yet.)
  • quande /kwandə/ "when" from Latin quandō

I don't know why. That's strange. I'll try putting a new link now.

EDIT: This one should work.
