I think B
Buliding large new hospital in the bistate area would constitute a wateful use of resources,on the basis of avoidance of duplicated facilities alone.
A. on the basis of avoidance of duplicated facilities alone --> ' alone' here is adj and can't not stand behind a noun-phrase avoidance of duplicated facilities
B. on the ground of avoiding duplicated facilities alone --> alone here can be an adverb and correctly stand behind a verb avoiding
C. solely in that dupilcated facilities should be avoided --> wordy and change the original meaning when putting solely in the beginning of the clause
D. while the dupilcation of facilities should be avoided --> this answer seems to say incorrectly that the duplication, not the facilities, should be avoided
E. if only because the duplication of facilities should be avoid --> undiomatic when using if then clause

IMO A.

B is wrong because of wrong idiom. it should be 'grounds for' not 'grounds of'

Just check on google the exact word series "on the ground of" and "on the ground for", and the results are that both two series have many instances. So I can assume that we can use both "on the ground of" and "on the ground for"

Once again, IMO B

I am also up for B.
B gives the correct meaning.

tenaman- IS it really hard to underline question?

I have a problem with some choices, I think they are incomplete: it probably should read 'avoided' in E, and 'on the grounds' in B.

tenaman10, could you please recheck the sentence and answer choices for typos/mistakes?
