It is a toughie to me. The correct answer is D.

Will try my best to explain it,
1 - Question says "Pierre’s response is inaccurate" - ok. Then think which part of statement indicates the inaccurate response.
2 - "That’s not true. It will take a lot more than" is the inaccurate response. why is it considered inaccurate?
3- Jacques's statement should be viewed in terms of "necessary" condition. In other words, he meant it is necessary to pass legislation to stop global warming.
4 - Pierre took it in terms of "sufficient" condition. In other words, passing the legislation is sufficient to stop global warming (It is not a sufficient because there are likely several other factors necessary to stop global warming).
