AndrewN, I did get this question right but it was a fluke, I would love to hear your take on this and understand as to why is A the correct answer to this question.

Hello, kntombat. I like the explanation VeritasKarishma has written above, and I particularly like the treatment of (E) and the advice at the end of the post to move on. The question, as presented, has some serious flaws. Choice (A) would only be a relevant consideration if the passage changed the conclusion from these companies would surely spend more money to these companies would surely have spent more money. Then, perhaps with some time markers as well (e.g., six months, or eight weeks), if oil companies were understood to have only recently begun to invest in scientific research that would support their interests, we might at least be able to grasp why there was a lack of such research.
