I agree that its A.

Answer E seems wrong - 'efficiency when' does not sound right. Answers C & D - 'efficiency of' does not sound right either. In Answer B - 'lowering prices' does not seem right in that context.

You have to have efficiency in something so eliminate C, D, and E. B is incorrect because it doesn't identify what stimulates the demand.

A remains.

I would say A.

To me, "...which boost consumption." doesn't make sense, thereby eliminating B, C, and E. D is incorrect because "Although improved efficiency 'of' converting..." doesn't seem to make sense to me either.

many discussions have taken place on this question and there appears to be a confusion between A and B
OA IS A
