B
B) The changes to India's economy produced a growing middle class and rising incomes. Tata responded to the new demand by producing a new car that sells for 100,000 rupees. Therefore, Tata must believe that a growing number of Indian consumers are willing and able to pay 100,000 rupees for a car, as Choice B indicates. Choice A goes against the discussion, and Indians have more money now. Choice C brings in concern for the environment, which is possible but not mentioned by the passage. Choice D speculates about the future, but the passage doesn't. Choice E, if anything, goes against the passage because the Tata sounds like a fuel-efficient car but not necessarily a safe one.
