D for me ...it's a cause and effect question ... need a participle to connect it "making" is the right choice ... which leaves us with A & D

In A "a United States citizen hold gold " is not correct

so D for me .

I'm not sure on this one, D is the only one that makes the sentence meaningful and not-awkward...but I thought Gmat doesn't like sentences starting with 'Because.."

Please correct me if I am wrong
