Each December 31 in Country Q, a tally is made of
the country’s total available coal supplies—that is,
the total amount of coal that has been mined
throughout the country but not consumed. In 1991
that amount was considerably lower than it had been
in 1990. Furthermore, Country Q has not imported or
exported coal since 1970.
If the statements above are true, which one of the
following must also be true on the basis of them?
(A) In Country Q, more coal was mined in 1990 than
was mined in 1991.
(B) In Country Q, the amount of coal consumed in
1991 was greater than the amount of coal
mined in 1991.
(C) In Country Q, the amount of coal consumed in
1990 was greater than the amount of coal
consumed in 1991.
(D) In Country Q, the amount of coal consumed in
1991 was greater than the amount of coal
consumed in 1990.
(E) In Country Q, more coal was consumed during
the first half of 1991 than was consumed
during the first half of 1990.

Assuming all of the coal mined in a given year is consumed by the end of the following year, B is the right answer.

Yes Answer should be 'B'.

If the consumption of coal in 91 is equal to the coal mined in 1991 then Available coal supplies in 1991 would be equal to 1990.

Because coal availability is less in 1991 than of 1990, Consumption of coal in 1991 is more than the mined coal in 1991.

I hope this explaination will be useful...
