I contend A for both.

1) B is wrong because it uses when. "When the strong dollar....something will happen in the future, but the manufacturers "have alraedy produced".
C is wrong because wrong Plural verb usage of "have" rather than "has"

2)B is wrong not as concise and clear as A. Altering the environment "is" a way of damaging the bird's habitats not "in" a way.

what do you think?

1. b and 2.a

I picked 1.a because 'have produced' is present perfect..so action started in the past and continues into the present. A seems to do this

2.a is because 'in way of damaging' sounds unidiomatic.

When I was young, I used to play soccer....->

In (2) - A,
by damaging the bird's habitats as a result of altering the environment.

The underscored part souds awkward to me.
Do you think it appropriately modifies "damaging"?
