(A) the annual cost to the United States of illiteracy in lost industrial output and tax revenues is at least \$20 billion a year - 'annual' and 'year' redundant
(B) the annual cost of illiteracy to the United States is at least \$20 billion a year because of lost industrial output and tax revenues - 'annual' and 'year' redundant
(C) illiteracy costs the United States at least \$20 billion a year in lost industrial output and tax revenues - CORRECT
(D) \$20 billion a year in lost industrial output and tax revenues is the annual cost to the United States of illiteracy - 'annual' and 'year' redundant
(E) lost industrial output and tax revenues cost the United States at least \$20 billion a year because of illiteracy - wordy
