Commentator: In the new century, only nations with all the latest electronic technology will experience great economic prosperity. The people in these nations will be constantly bombarded with images of how people in other countries live. This will increase their tendency to question their own customs and traditions, leading to a dissolution of those customs and traditions. Hence, in the new century, the stability of a nation’s cultural identity will likely ______________ .

Which one of the following most logically completes the commentator’s argument?

(A) depend on a just distribution of electronic technology among all nations
(B) decrease if that nation comes to have a high level of economic wealth
(C) be ensured by laws that protect the customs and traditions of that culture
(D) be threatened only if the people of that culture fail to acquire the latest technical skills
(E) be best maintained by ensuring the gradual assimilation of new technical knowledge and skills

IMO A

prethink: if the culture is affected by the images viewed by the other nation people, who just follow them, ...than by making sure that all cultures have the same level of images or technology,we can protect culture.

IMO B.
The argument says ONLY nations with tech will have prosperity(read wealth in option). People of these nations will have all the issues with culture(bombarded with images & dissolution of their customs etc.). Hence their own identity will decrease.
"Only" is the keyword here. No other nation will be wealthy hence cause & effect(tech leads to wealth) can be reversed & B stands strong.
