'that' should'nt refer to a plural.Is that a right way to eliminate answer choice C.As 'that' in C is refering to "pest control methods".

I thought that this question means: in 1880s, though crops A,B,C etc. were destroyed by pests, the effective pest control saved the citrus industry.

Is this not what the sentence means?

I felt choices A, B and C do not convey this message properly so they have to be ruled out. Please throw some light on this, because if this is not the case then the sentence does not make any sense to me.

Crops A, B, C, D and E were destroyed not in 1880, but before that year. Subsequently in the year 1880 pest-control was used, thereby saving crop F.

a]Pests had destroyed grape, celery, chili pepper crops, sugar beet and walnut in the region, but in the 1880s, more effective pest-control methods saved the citrus industry.
b]Pests had destroyed grape, celery, chili pepper, sugar beet and walnut crops in the region, but in the 1880s, more effective pest-control methods saved the citrus industry.
c]Pests had destroyed grape, celery, chili pepper, sugar beet and walnut crops in the region, but more effective pest-control methods that were introduced in the 1880s saved the citrus industry.
d]In the 1880s, pests destroyed grape, celery, chili pepper, sugar beet and walnut crops in the region and more effective pest-control methods saved the citrus industry.
e]In the 1880s, more effective pest-control methods saved the citrus industry from what was destroying grape, celery, chili pepper, sugar beet and walnut crops in the region.



I could see there is discussion around C. C is incorrect because it says introuduction of something saved the industry. Introduction itself cannot have desire result.

c]Pests had destroyed grape, celery, chili pepper, sugar beet and walnut crops in the region, but more effective pest-control methods that were introduced in the 1880s saved the citrus industry.
