To be the right answer, a choice must be proved by the passage. Here, we know that taxes would lower pollution, but not necessarily by raising awareness, as (B) indicates.
In fact, it's hard to see how higher taxes could raise awareness about environmental problems. Whether or not such a thing is possible, though, we aren't given any evidence about it in this passage, so it's not the right answer.
Can this be diagramed conditionally- having a hard time with MSS questions?
e.g. problems ---> not reflected --> not affect decs.
reflected---> poll less
Can't seem to make answer C work that way to prove out
Yes, you've symbolized correctly, and that's great if it's helpful to you (sounds like you didn't find it useful here, which is also totally fine. Conditional symbols are a tool).
The last sentence of the passage says that reflecting the cost would cause people to pollute less. The first sentence tells us that "pollute less" means "burn less gasoline."
Thus, as you've correctly symbolized and as (C) says in words, if higher gas prices (in the form of taxes) fully reflect the costs, people will burn less gasoline.
