D for me...we need to account for the increase in 1990...I dont see how A can account for the increase by 20% given the conditions.

I narrowed down to A and D. Both seem correct. Please explain why D is not OA.

Well A is right - and unless by some divine intervention - because picking A is anything but intuitive - one were to just "get" it somehow - eliminating the other choices is a royal pain

Yeah, I am not convinced with OA either. I like D better.
If in 1910, moderate rainfall is somewhere .1 to .9 then in 1990, the city can have more than double of that amount and D still would be valid!!

At first I choose D but later after some calculation Option D can never be true based on the condition provided. Hence option A is true.

Thank you all for explanations

A is the only possible option. Other options cannot be true.
