I pick B.

A makes no sense --> modifier error.

C does not mention Venezuela; it only mentions Venezuela's economy --> which means that 'president of the country' does not make sense.

This is interesting.

I chose B but OA is C. However, when I have gone through the OE it says B is correct, but It chose C. ???

I guess we need to put this question to the challenge team, but before that, lets solve it.
