CEO, Global Sugars; Setting up a Beet sugar plant in civil war-torn Kanjing province is not imprudent, despite the opposition from critics of the strategy. We opened a Beet sugar plant in Yangon presidency, amidst massive left sponsored revolution, ten years ago and that plant has been our trump card generating successful profits ever since.

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

Question is about drawing conclusion i.e. inference from the argument above. CEO argues that Kanjing, though civil war torn, would be good to set up a beet sugar plant. Giving the example of plant set up 10 years under massive opposition in Yangon presidency, he mentioned specifically that the plant is generating profits since then. Finally, he concludes that the plan to set up plant in Kanjing is a wise.

A. Wars are profitable for the author's particular business. - WRONG. Two words are redflags here - 'war' and 'particular' - both are not mentioned in the argument rather are extremes.
B. Kanjing province is a more stable nation than Yangon presidency. - WRONG. Stability is not referred anywhere in argument. Irrelevant to argument.
C. Critics of the proposed plant in Yangon presidency are likely to be biased. - WRONG. Even though the critics might be biased but that does not affect anything as far as conclusion is concerned. But we can't infer that critics are biased also it's irrelevant.
D. The proposed plant in Kanjing province will generate profits, despite war. - CORRECT. CEO draws an analogy from previous plant set up in another presidency despite opposition and argues that Kanjing plant would also be profitable based on that.
E. The proposed plant in Kanjing province will be more successful than in Yangon presidency. - WRONG. Comparison is nowhere can be identified in the argument.

Though 'A' and 'D' both revolve around war the word 'particular' takes away any inclination towards choosing the option 'A'.
