A.

Only A undermines by giving an example for not holding the debts steady.

I will go with â€˜Câ€™
A â€“ The conclusion is made from the figures obtained in 1980 & 1989 and not from figures obtained in 1985.
B - The conclusion is for countries that are trying to hold the external debt steady not for countries that what to lower their debt.
D â€“ The conclusion is concerned about share of â€˜world external-debtâ€™, so this does not undermine the conclusion
E â€“ Out of context.

Makes perfect sense. Thats why they say hindsight 20/20.

The idea here is to disprove that the countries were holding steady external debt. Choice A provides info that the external debt was infact varying for these countries.
