D is best
A,C and E "it" has incorrect referent.

If additional deposits of oil are found, it will increase the amount of oil that can be used as fuel and cause a drop in the price even if the deposits are not immediately tapped.

"it" incorrectly refers to plural noun "additional deposits"

B is obviously wrong because there is no such thing as an "amount being able to"
