Hi Expert,
I am confused between option A and B.
As per first statement in stimuli, i need both - rising standard of living and balanced trade to establish country's ability to compete. As per second sentence, if any one of these parameters decline it needs to be compensated by other. IMO, the OA should be B

As explained by Alexey1989x, the passage states that both a rising standard of living and balanced trade are required simultaneously to establish a country's ability to compete. If we only know that a country can balance its trade while its standard of living falls (choice B), we do not know whether it can balance its trade while its standard of living rises. Thus, we do not know if it can achieve both requirements simultaneously.
