What's the OA for this question?

I have a paper test which has this question. The OA is mentioned as (B). I doubt it.

I believe answer to be B. I havent read/confronted with the answer to X from Y.

Is to X from Y the correct idiom?
to X from Y AND from X to Y

Both are correct.

D in its share, from 6 percent to 10 percent, of the $21 billion book market in the country, which ranges

Simply eliminate D for illogical reference of which to country

no need to think so much about awkward construction...they are generally personalised....

The price fell FROM 10 euros TO 3 euros.
The price fell TO 3 euros FROM 10 euros.

They are both correct.
