    Under the environment of

    Under the environment of fierce competition, the only way John could imagine ______ stress was to get tougher by making greater efforts.
    A.handling handle C. handled D.having handled

    This is taken from our recent test paper. The given answer is B. But I think we should say 'Under the circumstances of' and I feel 'get tougher by making greater efforts' sounds a bit strange. How does the test question read to native speakers?

    Many thanks in advance.
