It is definitely not a 700 level question.

Despite facing revolutions in the yongan region, the plant went on to generate profits for the company. Likewise the author is confident that despite war in Kanjing province, the proposed plant would bring in profits.

Straight D. For the author, the plan is not so imprudent so long as it generates profits. It's all about the bottom-line when it comes to business.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz.

Which of the following is the author of the argument above most reasonably intending the reader to conclude?

This is a "Main Point" question. The correct answer choice should encapsulate the author's main point.
"Main Point" questions are a subset of "Must be True" questions
In Main point questions, even if an answer choice is "Must be True" according to the stimulus - if it fails to capture the main point, it cannot be correct.

A. Wars are profitable for the author's particular business.
The main point here is about the plant in Kanjing province.
B. Kanjing province is a more stable nation than Yangon presidency.
This is no where stated in the stimulus
C. Critics of the proposed plant in Yangon presidency are likely to be biased.
This is no where stated in the stimulus. In the stimulus, the critics have just opposed the strategy. We ave no information whether they are biasedor not
D. The proposed plant in Kanjing province will generate profits, despite war.
This is what the CEO of Global Sugars finally wants to convey , giving an analogy with the plant in Yangon presidency.
E. The proposed plant in Kanjing province will be more successful than in Yangon presidency.
This is no where stated in the stimulus
