Which of the following sentences will MOST logically complete the above excerpt?


Option A is the correct answer because it logically extends the information provided in the excerpt about the future potential of hydrogen in energy systems. The excerpt discusses how hydrogen may play a significant role in our energy systems, and Option A complements this by introducing the potential impact of such a change. It mentions the economic aspects, stating that the impact could be huge, potentially generating $2,500 billion in revenue globally and creating more than 30 million jobs. This additional information aligns with the broader implications of adopting hydrogen as a significant part of energy systems, making Option A the most logical completion of the excerpt.
