    The correct answer is option A.

    Explanation:

    The association of De Beers and its affiliated producers is a cartel.

    A cartel is formed by the producers in an oligopoly market, in order to protect their interests and earn higher profits. Forming a cartel is generally not legal in many countries. Cartels can be formed both formally and informally.

    Members of a cartel can fix a higher price to earn more profit.
