A seems fine.
B - "because of" seems unnecessary

C and D - IMO "of converting" somehow is less attractive than "in converting". Someone else think so too? There are other things wrong with D as well.

E - totally out.

I pick A.
The only reason for me is that the original sentence is contrasting the two effects of "increased efficiency".
In all the other choices we are missing that, plus they have problems individually as well.

Honestly I thought it was A too but "it" was bothering me because I know we may seem to think that it refers to efficiency but we are not sure.

Umm B because efficiency in... is correct. Which seems to refer to increasing supply and lowering prices.

B and E is absolutely ruled out "because of" is a wrong usage

A,C are a RunOn

I would tend towards D

Because of is not bad to use. I just re-read the sentence, which is ambiguous. Changing my answer back to A

I guess its too early in the morning :oops:

But since it clearly refers to efficiency, how is A a run-on, in that sense A should make perfect sense.

Winsec what is the correct answer? What is your source. I just did a search and Jerry had posted this question some time back and there was no OA posted for it.

I think "A" is good enough.

How is "A" run-on? :? I don't think so.

OA is B.....

There is no OE.. Sorry,, ^^

But, A can not be answer becasue

boosting modifies "DEMAND".

And, supply and prices stimulate demand, not demand by
supply and prices.. ^^

Agree with B,

As A has a pronoun reference problem with 'it'.

can some one please clarify whether "it" can be used to refer to an action such as "improved efficiency"?

I agree with Jerry. Which refers to "prices" or "lowering prices"? I think which can't refer to a verb. Please correct me.
