I was stuck between A and B on this one. I initially went with A, citing the passage in B that states "OBMs have a greater potential for negative environmental impact, partly because they do not disperse as readily". This seems pretty straightforward, but I read into it a lot and decided I thought A might be a trick answer that switches "readily" for "slowly", so I wasn't confident choosing it.
For B, it says that barite has the potential to impact some organisms, namely scallops. Now it doesn't necessarily say that barite has a negative influence on the scallops, but it doesn't seem likely that it would have a good effect. It was also sandwiched in there between the two bad effects (doesn't easily disperse and mineral oil can be toxic). Is it because it left that a possibility still that A is the winner?
Thanks for all the help, my studying is really benefitting from this forum!
