In these type of comparison questions look for an answer choice that shows the difference between two quantities that not similar and may be the cause of the conclusion.

see this question does a good job in repeating similar verbiage in all the answer choices, wasting your time.
I took weel above 2 mins as well

Mined-consumed= available

B , talks about the difference

straight B! Doesn't seem like a 700 level question. More of a mid 600 level.

Lets express the argument in terms of equation.

A-Available
M-Mined
C-Consumed

It is given that

A91+ M91 - C91 < A90
M91 - C91 < 0
M91 < C91

It is "could be" question...
The answer choice is a possible scenario. It must not be true!

No where in the argument, the author is saying that the coal mined in 1990 is used in 1991!
If the coal mined in 1990 is not usable due to some reasons, then option B will not be true!
To arrive at answer choice B, you have to assume that the coal produced in 1990 can be used in 1991! Hence this is "could be true" question -- not "must be true question.

We should be wary about such questions.. Such questions create just more confusion to the testers..
