^ A ^

(B) "component of" is idiomatic not "component in"

(C) "paper of all kinds is" not "are"

(D) "single components " ??! Also with "beacuse" we have the exact emphasis for the meaning.

Go with (A)

"paper of all kinds" shd be singular.. rule out C/D.
"component of" fits here compared to "component in"

(D) All kinds of paper are the biggest single components of municipal trash, and so many municipalities have tried recycling to reduce the cost of trash disposal.

B : " So that " is wordy
B/C : "have tried recycling to reduce " is much clearer over "to recycle"
C : S-V-A : paper ...are
D: "and so" not required

Hence A

Surely A
(B)"...many municipalities tried to recycle so..." doesn't sound right.
(C)"...single components..." Components is the plural form.
(D)"...single components..." Components is the plural form.

A looks the best .... C,D are out ... ic C : "are" is the culprit, in D : "kinds" are .. we ain't talking abt kinds ... in B : components "in" ..wrong usage ..
thus only A stands..
