hey magoosh thank you for the explanation :D however, I want to point out one issue here. In choice B , the sentence actually uses the verb "pay". "refiners pay . . . . . than they did."

You're very welcome :) And thanks for the heads up, Muhammad! I'll let our content team know about the mistake so that it can be corrected in a future version of the explanation. That said, since we're a small team with a lot of projects, I can't guarantee that a new video will be uploaded soon... Thanks again for pointing this out, though :D
