Ans D
A) The flow of the rivers is heavier in the spring than at other times of year. - Then the outages should be season specific.
b) Citizens of Country X rely heavily on electronic appliances in their homes. - The question stem already tells us that more than enough electricity is produced to meet the needs of the citizens.
c) Country X has not invested in alternate sources of energy. They don't need to.
d) Most of the electricity generated in Country X is sold to other countries. - Ah well here's our answer what if the electricity produced is not available to the citizens of country X?
e) Some of the most powerful rivers in Country X have yet to be dammed. - We are already producing enough electricity to support the needs of the citizens of country X
