Lemme take a shot at it.
I think the point of debate is that Irish potato famine did not follow the laws of supply and demand according to which wages should have risen. any option that puts forward argument supporting stagnating or falling wages eg for technological reasons should be be a strong candidate or in other words
I think we are basically looking for something that would lend least credence to the conclusion which is
"
but there was no significant rise in the average wages in Ireland in the following decade"

so keeping this in mind my votes for B though E comes a close second

OA is D

I believe the difficulty of the problem is that it has several twists in it. You are looking for an answer which will LEAST explain the situation which was unlikely to occur in the first place
