Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I was originally leaning towards C as well but the sentence seems to say tha the forms of solar energy will be economically competitive now or in a few years. The "will be" in the sentence tells me that the forms of solar energy are not yet economically competitive.
D works for me because it states that forms of solar energy are either (a) already economically competitive or (b) will be in a few years.
