paragraph/subsection/clause


Explanation:
These terms come from the Oxford Superlex and the Cabanellas-Hoage Law dictionary.

Personally, I would choose one of the first 2.

Hope this helps:-)

section


Explanation:
Sometimes also translated as "paragraph" but I like to use "section" because you never know whether that "inciso" was divided into more than one paragraph.

Reference: West's Spanish-English Dictionary of Law and Business

paragraph (b)


Explanation:
In this context, I'd suggest:

"Article B, Section 5, paragraph (b)..."

Articles are customarily divided into sections, and sections can then be divided into either subsections or paragraphs, depending on the number of levels. If the (b)-level text is the lowest one, use "paragraph"; otherwise, use "subsection," and save "paragraph" for the next level down.


Cheers,
HC

part (b)


Explanation:
Can also be "section, subsection, paragraph", etc., and part can also be "apartado", but the main thing is merely to be consistent within the context.
