(A) it is.

(A): This shows that the states are ready to tap their existing infrastructure and recover lost employment opportunities immediately. Correct.
(B): Irrelevant to job recoveries. Incorrect.
(C): Unrelated to the green sector. Incorrect.
(D): Continuing manufacturing in the green sector cannot enable job recoveries. That can be done only if a new activity is started in the green sector, as in (A). Incorrect.
(E): If a research process is started, it will be some time before jobs are recovered (if the results are positive later). This does not put the states in a strong position right now to recover jobs through initiatives in the green energy area. Incorrect.
