Opening a plant in war-torn Country X is not inadvisable, despite what critics of the plan may say. Ten years ago we opened our plant in Country Y in the middle of a revolution; that plant has been generating substantial profits ever since.

Which of the following is the author of the argument above most reasonably intending the reader to conclude?

A. Wars are profitable for the author's particular business.
B. Country X is a more politically stable nation than is Country Y.
C. Critics of the proposed plant in Country X are likely to be biased.
D. The proposed plant in Country X will generate profits despite the war.
E. The proposed plant in Country X will be more successful than the plant in Country Y.

D for me.

The argument gives example of the plant in country Y to suggest similar results can be expected out of setting a plant in country X.

B, C and E are not conclusions.

A and D are potential candidates. but if you closely look at argument, author is comparing his statements using an example. So D is preferable.
A will be more generic.

The key word is 'Despite'

Simple D. The author wants the reader to conclude that X and Y have similar situations.
