I think it's C.

The primary difference between C and D is that D uses the word "while". "While" doesn't have any place in the sentence because it suggests that the part of the sentence following it is not a continuation of the first part, whereas we know that "duplicated facilities" is the reason why "resources" are wasted.

Also, the word "duplicated" in C seems to flow a lot better in the sentence than does "duplication".

I think it should be B.

>> In C "should" distorts the meaning.

Building large new hospitals in the bistate area would constitute a wasteful use of resources,______ .

I too believe that B is the right option, because:

First part of the sentence states that building new hospital in the area overlapping the 2 states (bi state) would constitute wasteful use of resources, and the second should give a reason to support it, so the sentence to follow should be either A or B i.e '...on the basis of...' or '...on the grounds of...'.

Here option B sounds better than A because of the use of 'avoiding' .

There is one more option which is not there in the posted question is

(E) if only because the duplication of facilities should be avoided

I will prefer E for If....Then construction.

I guess this option bridges the gap.

Any one please explains more clearly why E is the best answer. I wonder using If construction in this case may change the meaning of the original sentence? Why B is incorrect?
