Just starting out in SC hence my reasoning might not be as good as some of the other members in here. Anyways I narrowed down to B simply because the "it" was not very clear. I guess the antecedent for "it" in this question is paper and this changes the meaning of the sentence.

The correct answer thus should eliminate the pronoun antecedent issue.

The reference for it or its is out of place, wherever it appears. Only B avoids the trap and is the right choice for me.

+1 B

"is" is only necessary if the meaning is ambiguous.

Answer is "B" as the gist of the sentence is to use the comparative degree, in comparative degree one uses "to be" only once thus "B" should be chosen!!

B - because of two reasons :

1) The ambiguity of "it is" is not there(it can refer to wood also).

2) More subtly, "market for all other" is required instead of "market for all" because paper's market can't be more than that of itself, if you say "market for all", you include paper also in that.
