one other concern with B is the awakwardness of increasing supply (would be increased supply, is what I think).

so A.

A. no error.
B. passive and awakward.
C/D/E are all either too wordy or ambigious, or awakward of unidiomatic.

I will just analyse A:

I am not sure whether the sentence makes sense: improved efficiency will stimulate demand by increasing supply and
lowering prices? I don't think this is the intended meaning.

IMO, that is what exactly the sentence is trying to say.

The fight is between (A) and (B);however,somewhere in other threads it was written that "IT" in (A) has no antecedent , but in IMHO "IT" clearly has a antecedent as per pronoun reference RULE that "A pronoun in a || clause always refer to the NOUN in clause || to it.


Plz Advice !!!
Thanks

IMHO the right answer should be "A". "IT" clearly refers to "the improved efficiency" and I see no problem with the original sentence... Also "B" is wrong. It uses "which" incorrectly and conveys the meaning that "prices" boost consumption and is illogical.. Even if someone were to tell me that OA is B, I would still choose A... I would not worry too much if I select "A" for this question and get it wrong because "A" seems to be the best option.
