I think it's C!
All other answers focus on the consumer which is also addressed in the passage.
C however is about internal manufacturing costs, an issue that is never mentioned in the text.

I think its C as well. C isnt quite relevant to ask in this situation; in this situation, the questions should concern the marketplace situation for these green products. The other options ask the relevant questions such as how many other products occupied this space, how much marketing was done, etc.
