I was stuck between B and D. Is B wrong because of the word "proven"? Even though the last paragraph talks about how negotiations rather than international court decisions are the principal means of resolving international environmental disputes does not prove negations to be more effective. Is this right?

Thanks

Grace,

Remember that the question is asking for something that the scholars and the author both agree on. As you pointed out, the last paragraph is the part of the passage that talks about direct negotiations. But that's the author saying that. There is no indication that the scholars think or even realize that. In fact, the paragraph starts out by saying that the scholars are "misdirecting their efforts." So these claims about negotiations are not coming from the scholars but instead are claims the author is making. And the author is making those claims in part to try to suggest that the scholars could do their jobs better if they were aware of these facts. We cannot assume the scholars agree - there is a strong indication that the scholars don't even know this yet, and should pay attention to it and learn more about it to do their jobs better.
