A. Wars are profitable for the author's particular business.
B. Country X is a more politically stable nation than is Country Y.
C. Critics of the proposed plant in Country X are likely to be biased.
D. The proposed plant in Country X will generate profits despite the war.
E. The proposed plant in Country X will be more successful than the plant in Country Y.

D for me.

The argument gives example of the plant in country Y to suggest similar results can be expected out of setting a plant in country X.

B, C and E are not conclusions.

A and D are potential candidates. but if you closely look at argument, author is comparing his statements using an example. So D is preferable.
A will be more generic.

Simple D. The author wants the reader to conclude that X and Y have similar situations.
