Let, i guess........
(A) ok.
(B) avoiding duplicated facilities alone ---too much adj.
(C) (which is)solely (in that)duplicated facilities should be avoided --wordy relative pronoun
(D) while the duplication of facilities should be avoided ---change meaning
(E) if only because the duplication of facilities should be avoided--weird meaning and should be used only one of these(if only / because)

You guys have chosen A B and C as choices. None of them is the OA!
Any one else?

okay I know E is the OA, but I don't agree with that.

one of the rules in past subjunctive form is that if and would (should) be in the same clause.

E is wrong becasue the second clause hasif........ should -

the correct sentence will be looking like this.

Building large new hospitals in the bistate area would constitute a wasteful use of resources, if duplication of facilities were avoided

In the absence of this, B is closest.
