Answer is E -
A and B - use of alone and verb usage is off. Answr C incorrectly uses "in that." Answer D uses while to incorrectly show a contrast.


Answe E - correctly uses "if only" and retains the the correct verb tense.

avoidance of duplicated facilities --> incorrect.
means facilities are already duplicated and you want to avoid them.
eliminate A,B,C

duplication of facilities should be avoided.. -- correct

E looks better.

i don't know if you really found this so straight forward :-( "if only because" is not so commonly used in this part of the world at least i struggled with the OA. Can you give more more examples of this usage?

I understand that each of A, B and C has problem. but what is the issue with D ? In fact, D looks more precise than E does.
