Option A describes the chaotic cobbling together of nation states in the "breakneck" pace of decolonisation and violent conflict that followed. Option B posits that it is not the fault of "bad leaders" that few of the formerly colonised countries are now peaceful, affluent and democratic. This relates to the idea in option A, that the rapid pace of decolonisation contributed to violent conflict in the newly formed nations. Option C talks about economic institutions in the new states. This is at odds with A and B, which relate to the political chaos resulting from decolonisation. Option D explained how 'strongmen' held infant states together by stoking sectarian rivalries. This too relates to the ideas in A and B, of the after-effects of decolonisation on the political apparatus of the newly formed nations. BAD makes a cogent paragraph. Option C is the one to be eliminated. Correct Answer: Choice (C)
