I think B is best here.

C is tempting "A position is strengthened by showing that the opposite of that position would have logically absurd consequences." But the use of the word absurd is a bit extreme. Absurd consequences refers to not charging for materials such as oil and coal.

B.
Developed countries do not pay to use crops from underdeveloped countries.
Developed countries pay to use other natural resources such as coal from underdeveloped countries. So, developed countries should pay to use crops from underdeveloped countries.

Common point between two cases: developed countries utilize natural resources from underdeveloped countries.
This common point is used to equate the two cases.

A would be plausible if "number of" were omitted.

My vote for B.
Maybe the author can explain us what is that those phenomena have in common with the plants. Still, he assumed some kind of correlation. B it is.
