C :paper of all kinds singular
E : all kinds of paper plural

D out. , and so is wrong. looking awkward.

A is wrong - wrong tense use "have"

1min15. A it is
A) I don't see anything wrong with present perfect tense. Subject-verb agreement is fine here
B) I don't like passive form here. Also, the idiom is "...so that X be reduced"
C) subject-verb agreement error. Should read "is" because it is the paper which is the single biggest component
D) double use of conjunction "and" + "so"
E) subject-verb agreement. "are" is needed.

A should be it (45.45s)

Agree with Paul - though there was a lot that I could learn from Paul's explanation
