^ 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"

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..
