was mined in 1991.
(B) In Country Q, the amount of coal consumed in
1991 was greater than the amount of coal
mined in 1991.
(C) In Country Q, the amount of coal consumed in
1990 was greater than the amount of coal
consumed in 1991.

1991 was greater than the amount of coal
consumed in 1990.
(E) In Country Q, more coal was consumed during
the first half of 1991 than was consumed

B ??

We have no information to compare 1990 with 1991.
So, A,C,D,E all are out.

Moreover, B says that the comsumption was more than the mined coal. This could be the reason of lower available coal supplies.

Official ans ?
