  1. I go along with A but I'm skeptical of C. Technically that is correct (it reduces the use of Cu) BUT you can't do the things one does with Cu. Wouldn't D allow us to continue appliances with electrical wiring made of Al and save on Cu. Doing this allows us to continue life as we know it BUT cut down on the use of Cu metal which saves on the ores.
