Belorechensk, a once poor import dependent country, is now a major exporter

Belorechensk, a once poor import dependent country, is now a major exporter in the world. Twenty years ago Belorechensk's government introduced a strategy it hoped would engender industrialization; ten years tax rebate for exporters who export goods listed in the government's export hot-list. Paknachkuioth Brothers, a struggling import oriented business, soon began exporting several goods that the world market demands. In twenty years, Paknachkuioth grew to become one of the richest companies in the region. Paknachkuioth established numerous branches in South-West region of Belorechensk and transformed the economic destiny of a once impoverished region. Recently, the government of Belorechensk won the Nobel Peace Prize for transforming the economic destiny of the people of Belorechensk using ideal methods.
Which of the following, if true, would lend the MOST support to the opinion of commentators who recently said that it would have been more sensible had the Nobel Peace Prize been given to Paknachkuioth instead of to the government of Belorechensk?
A. Belorechensk actually used very fraudulent means to grow.
B. Good people find it ridiculous that the government of Belorechensk won the Nobel Peace Prize thereby destroying the credibility of Nobel Peace Prize among good people.
C. A newspaper company with a very poor readership had many decades ago published a report in which a certain nondescript business firm was boasting it could grow businesses by using ideal styles such as emitting zero carbon in all its industrial operations and ultimately the newspaper company published a verified scientific report that predicted that the ideal methods cannot succeed.
D. Paknachkuioth will not use the government hot-list if it becomes a new policy.
E. It has been proven three days ago that Paknachkuioth was penned down as the winner of the award, but an eleventh hour very secret discussion ensured that the name was hastily changed.

Why not  A?

Recently, the government of Belorechensk won the Nobel Peace Prize for transforming the economic destiny of the people of Belorechensk using ideal methods.

Option C weakens the conclusion by stating that ideal methods will not work as published by the newspaper company.

 

Cheers.
