    • D.

      Uncomfort

    Correct Answer
    B. Inconvenience

    Higher oil prices have led to an increased demand for electric cars because when oil prices rise, people tend to look for alternative modes of transportation that are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Electric cars provide a solution to both these concerns as they do not rely on oil and offer lower operating costs. Therefore, the increased demand for electric cars can be attributed to the higher oil prices.
