Hi Fozzy,

Here is the full sentence for B (the correct answer)

The recent decrease in revenue has been attributed to rising energy prices and plummeting consumer confidence, which was much lower than is typical for this time of year, hurting sales of big ticket items such as automobiles.


Hurting is related to 'plummeting consumer confidence' as ever with a section within 2 commas you can remove that bit from the sentence and it will still make sense. Here is the shorter sentence which makes it clear:


The recent decrease in revenue has been attributed to rising energy prices and plummeting consumer confidence, hurting sales of big ticket items such as automobiles.


Make Sense?
