    Welcome to the board, hungrymind, but please read the rules.

    This looks like your homework.

    We're not supposed to help you with that.

    Sir,
    i am delighted to know your response , can you pl. justify it grammatically.

    My take is D.
    In A it reads as if municipality is going to be recycled
    I have a doubt with this :-
    All kinds of paper are
    Paper of all kinds is/are

    which one is correct?
