What does the phrase “People of the Book” imply about Islam's relationship to Judaism and Christianity? Islam viewed itself as the only religion guided by the words of God. Islam granted respect to certain religions that lived by written scriptures. Islam sought to imitate the other two religions' emphasis on writing. Islam saw the Judeo-Christian Bible as being equal to the Qur'an.

I'd probably go with the second option -- Islam granted respect to certain religions that lived by written scriptures. The reasons why is that Islam did not see itself as the only religion guided by the words of God. It acknowledged that both the Jews and Christians received it, but that it became corrupted over time. The Qu'ran is also seen as the final testament, the completion, of the teachings from God by the Muslims, so while it respected the Bible, they did not regard it as equal to the Qu'ran in that respect.
