Environmental groups have sued GreenClean, the largest recycling company in the world, and accused the firm of negligent handling of chemical waste. The fines and legal fees that the company has incurred as a result of the legal attacks against it have cost the company a significant amount of money. Astonishingly, as successful lawsuits against GreenClean have increased in number, the company has only grown stronger and more profitable.

Which one of the following, if true, does the most to resolve the apparent paradox?

A. Although recycling firms merely handle but do not generate toxic waste, these firms have been held legally responsible for environmental damage caused by this waste.
B. GreenClean has made significant contributions to environmental causes, as have other large recycling companies.
C. Some of the judgments against GreenClean have legally barred it from entering more profitable areas of the waste management business other than recycling.
D. GreenClean's legal hassles have encouraged most of its competitors to exit this field and this deterred potential rivals from entering it.
E. In cases in which GreenClean has been acquitted of charges of negligence, the company has paid more in legal fees than it would have been likely to pay in fines.

I bet on D
We have to infer that the company ultimately becomes profitable despite the fines incurred facing lawsuit.
In option D the decrease in the number of competitors gives opportunity for company to boost its profit
