D

Clear, concise.

the 'and' answers are wrong; The capital did not add to the strain of the economy, it was that the act of it leaving that added strain to the economy.

Why not B?

In GMAT question, is it true that the timeline should not fall in the starting statement?

Meaning,

1) During the 1940s, the Japanese attacked China. is wrong?

2) The Japanese attacked China during the 1940s. is right?

Is this a definite rule of thumb?

Break it up:

During the 1980’s approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated to have added to the strain on the country’s debt-ridden economy.

It's not the \$50B in capital that added to the strain on the economy, it was the fact that it left. Only D/E convey this.

During the 1980’s it is estimated

no. that starts a subordinated clause. estimated and during the 1980's are two discrete past actions.

thats really cool.

mainly "and added" changes the meaning, which doesnot make sense. so need modifying phrase.

so its D.
