MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

‘As a result from’ in B is incorrect. ‘Costing reconstructions’ in C is also incorrect. D implies that the reconstruction would be done with European governments. According to the original sentence, it was the negotiations which were conducted with European governments. Eliminate D. E implies that the costs came more directly from negotiating. The costs came from the reconstruction. Eliminate E. Choice A is the correct answer.
