D in my opinion. The sentence is about the quantity of paper that would be recycled.

D it is.
More than ever, is misleading as it incorrectly points out that it is time based and not quantity based.
Amount , clearly refers to the quantity of paper being recycled.

+1 D

We are talking about "the amount of paper", not about the paper. D is more clear.

For those who profess by D, I have a small question. The comparative term ‘greater’ is to be used strictly with numbers. Where is any number in the topic? The amount here refers to a volume, essentially a non- countable factor.

In addition why such a circuitous way of saying as paper that will be recycled this year is expected to be? Can’t we crisply say as paper expected to be recycled this year is?

Agree with Daghah we need more for uncountable and greater for countable items/. How come the amount be greater, this doesn't make any sense. C it is in my opinion, although question may indeed by flawed.

Well, Correct me if I'm wrong,

but Greater is used for non-countable noun as well as for numbers.. thus the usage here seems to be correct!!

Piyush is very close. Greater is used with numbers. When dealing with countable OR un-countable nouns we use "more".
"I have more blue hats than black hats." [hats are countable]
"I have more love for dogs than you do." [love is not countable]

When the noun is a number (amount, percentage, quantity, etc.), we use "greater".
"The amount of love I have for dogs is greater than your love for dogs."
"The percentage of blue hats is greater than the percentage of black hats."
"The amount of paper that will be recycled this year is expected to be greater than ever..."

Question to experts

what does "due to ...", which can be interchanged with "caused by", modify here ?

"greater than ever" in D) cannot be modified by "due to..."

In this sentence, "due to..." is acting as an adverbial modifier and is modifying the entire preceding clause. The amount of recycling is increasing due to (or caused by or as a result of) the recycling laws.

I believe "due to" should always modify nouns. And, essentially this is striking difference between the usage of "due to" and "because of", the latter of which always modifies clauses.

Let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

You are absolutely correct. I should have pointed out in my previous post that "due to" is used as an adverbial modifier incorrectly - "because of" would be correct. Watch out when studying problems from non-GMAT sources because some elements will be used incorrectly.
