Hi paritosh

B is preferred to D because of meaning clarity.
D mentions all the countries do not support which means out 100 countries all 100 do not support

Whereas B mentions not all countries support which means out of 100 countries some support and some dont
Not all means not all 100 but some

Hope you find the explantionhelpful

Suggestions are welcome

Doesn't the original statement 'Each of the countries in the world do not support' mean that none of the countries support.
Option D also implies the same meaning i.e. none of the countries support whereas option B changes the meaning by implying that some of the countries do support.

Thanks.

I don't think the original sentence means the same. The intended meaning of the sentence is to tell us that not all countries support but the ones who support can do can work together.

Thanks.
gmat_India makes a good point: it's the intended meaning that we're looking for, and to find it, we can look at the text that is not underlined. Because the sentence has but the ones that do (support), there must be other countries that don't support. Option B expresses that more clearly than D. For example:

All the products don't contain sugar.
Not all products contain sugar.

Also I just want to highlight for option A that,

EACH or EVERY requires a singular verb form.

Each of the countries in the world do not support the accounting standards proposed by the committee set up to look into and suggest measures to curb money laundering, but the ones that do can work together to stem the flow of illegally obtained money.

(A) Each of the countries in the world do not support the accounting standards proposed by the committee set up to look into and suggest measures
There is a PRONOUN NUMBER AGREEMENT error here as well. "does not support" is the correct verb form.

Also, the intended meaning is the most important thing in solving this question correctly as pointed in the previous posts. Option B is the best!

It is between B and D.
D changes the meaning.D mentions all the countries do not support which means all the countries do not support , this is not the intended meaning here.
