I get that the answer is (C) but I don’t get why the answer is (E)

In answer (E), it says something about personnel costs.
And the stimulus doesn’t’ have any facts about personnel costs.
Should I have to assume that “replacing all the traditional electric generators” has something to do with personnel costs?

Could anyone explain why the answer is (E) ? :-D
Thank you!

Hi Jaeyoung,
For Answer E, if the personnel costs are unrelated to the raw materials that are used it could mean that even if the raw materials were cheap(er) the personnel costs may not have decreased along with the cost of raw materials and that may explain why there was only a 25% reduction in cost for consumers.
Hope that helps!!
