NM i see this one now. Duhhhhhhhhhh.
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..
