200% true. I stared at this for at least 15 seconds extra before deciding B was the one. It's an ugly question by any standards.

welcome back GMATBLACKBELT ! This is the 1st first post I see from you after you met your nemesis.. !!! Hope you come out more lethal now to avenge the monster ..

I closed in on D but then I realized that D is tangent to the statements in Q. B connects both the sentences of the argument together.. Since US consumes 1/3rd of the global resources, its contribution towards depletion is high and hence it should keep its consumption constant..

Thanks guys... another realization..

B and D are the only choices of contention.

I read B is OA but I dont agree with it.

If the rest of world consumes 2/3rds of resources then how will containing US's 1/3 resources will hold the balance.
