OA is D.

Could someone please elaborate on why C is wrong?

Also, in first sentence, it clearly says that in some countries where drug is not patented, it sells for less.

(C) In some countries specific processes for the manufacture of pharmaceutical drugs can be patented even in cases in which the drugs themselves cannot be patented.

Hi Firstly, in weaken/strengthen question, "some" is avoidable because we need to have a firm arguments/statement to weaken/strengthen

Coming back to the choice, this statement is talking about patenting the process, but is patenting the process happening in the countries where the products are not allowed to be patented?
We don't know that: uncertainty, so burn this choice and move.
