    You can easily eliminate two of these answers:

    B. can be eliminated because you are not sending anything out of the country so you are not the exporter

    C. can be eliminated because you are not producing the basketballs

    That leaves you with A. and D.

    If you look at definition of importer - it means to bring in something from a foreign country to sell. Now look at definition of consumer
