  • Correct Answer
    Choice C

Detailed Solution

Sentence A talks about the amount of e-waste generated around the world.

Sentence D talks about the largest producers of e-waste and how Asian cities are catching up. Sentence B substantiates this point, giving the example of China as a huge consumer of electronic goods and hence generator of e-waste. So ADB make a paragraph.

Only sentence C, which talks about illegal dumping of e-waste, does not fit in with the rest.

Correct Answer: Choice (c)
