Hello quang hai.
The test that the question came from is about business idioms.
A typical idiom which is used a lot in business (and in other aspects of life) is that someone had a 'change of heart'. It means they changed their opinion, belief or earlier decision about something.
Although we might well say that someone changed their point of view about something, it isn't a common idiom, as all the answers in that test are meant to be.
(So if it wasn't in the test, it might be an appropriate answer, but because that particular test is designed for a specific purpose, it doesn't fit as well as 'change of heart'.)
I hope that helps make things clearer for you.
