I am strongly against the OA in this one.

The earth’s resources are being depleted much too fast.
To correct this, the United States must keep its resource consumption at present levels for many years to come.

14.Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument above?
(A) New resource deposits are constantly being discovered.
(B) The United States consumes one-third of all resources used in the world.
(C) Other countries need economic development more than the United States does.
(D) Other countries have agreed to hold their resource consumption at present levels.
(E) The United States has been conserving resources for several years.

Tough one. B and D, both seems correct.

I has gone for B way back when I encountered the question; today I went for D. Think I'm getting worse.

Though the OA is B, i would still vouch for D Here is why:

Stem: The Earths resources are depleting fast.
COnclusion: US has to keep consumption at present levels.

B talks about total consumption of US as a percentage of world consumption. If that (not the percentage but the amount of consumtion) is kept constant, it may decrease the percentage of US consumption in comparison to that of the world's but it may not impact the rate of depletion of earths resources as a whole. What if the rest of the world decides to follow US way?

D talks about the rest of the world consumption as well. US is keeping the consumption constant and the rest of the world also keeps up with this hence the rate of depletion of earths resources is reduced.

IMO it should be D
