Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Option A talks of a plastic recycling campaign by Keep America Beautiful which urges consumers to reduce their plastic footprint. None of the other three sentences refer to this campaign. However, the point of the campaign--making consumers assume responsibility for their plastic footprint-- is echoed in option C, which talks of shifting "the onus of environmental responsibility onto the public".

Option B states that Keep America Beautiful has opposed legislation that would increase producer responsibility for plastic waste. Option D too talks of a legal framework and responsibility on plastic manufacturers. Clearly, D adds to the point in B, about Keep America Beautiful being against increasing the responsibility on plastic manufacturers, who are the producers of the waste.

We have two ideas relating to plastic footprint here: one relating to consumer responsibility and another relating to producer responsibility. Which sentence provides a common link?

Option C, which states that "its greatest success" is in "shifting the onus of environmental responsibility onto the public" while " simultaneously becoming a trusted name in the environmental movement", fits the bill. This relates to the point made in D : Keep America Beautiful has built public support for punishing individual litterers, while "greenwashing" and ignoring the environmental responsibility of plastic manufacturers.

BCD makes a cogent paragraph.

The question is " Choose the Sentence that does not fit in "

Hence, the answer is Sentence A

Choice A is the correct answer.
