Here use of sub ordinate conjunction ( or a dependent marker) "because" is tested.
You can use dependent marker to meaningfully convey throughts in form as follows

Dependent marker + dependent clause , Independent clause

in other words, in this question, look for answer choice that fits this template.

As you can see only choice A fits the mold






Choices B & C have errors in independent clause

D & E has erroneous construction along with wrong usage of so many.
Hope this helps

'component of' vs 'component in'.

The former, 'component of' should be the correct one. 'Component' already suggests a part of, so 'in' is redundant. So (B) and (C) are out.

(D) is out. 'are' is the wrong verb for 'all kinds of paper'

Between (A) and (E), I'll take (A). (E) uses 'have tried to recycle', suggesting that they have not started recycling, but rather, they're still trying to start recycling.

(A) uses 'have tried recycling' which means they have tried out recycling, and are still doing so today.

A it is.

Also go with A. (A) Because paper of all kinds is the biggest single component of municipal trash, many municipalities have tried recycling to reduce the cost of trash disposal.

B has tense problem.
C and E have subject-verb agreement
D is awakward.

"A"......paper of all kinds is "singular", as it indicates a gp, also "component of" is right idiom

Can someone explain why 'have tried' is required in A? I am of the opinion that simple 'tried' is sufficient.
