The answer is B.
Topical or logical organization can be used when someone is planning a presentation or speech that contains several ideas that are interrelated. As the sentence A shows: the objective of the conference is to discuss topics that have some connection among them, as problems that affect some countries: poverty, war and disease.
B. Do you have problems with mosquitoes and gnats? Fabulous Exterminators can help!
This is the sentence that most clearly uses the problem-solution organization. In a problem-solution organization, the author introduces a problem or complication that requires a solution. Afterwards, he proceeds to explain what the solution is. This is a very effective structure as it links two ideas in a clear and practical way. In this example, the problem that we find is mosquitoes and gnats. The solution that the author suggests is that of hiring "Fabulous Exterminators."

Imagery is a literary device that uses a vivid and descriptive language that evokes pictures or ideas in our minds that appeals to our senses, be it our sight, hearing, smell, taste or touch.
The two options that best fits this definition is B and D: They are both descriptive and B appeals to our sight, while D appeals to our senses of smell and sight. However, the option that has a somber, dark and negative mode here is D because it describes an awful and smelly atmosphere (the putrid swamp) and it talks about death, ghosts, and suffering (the ghosts of those who died here were drowning still).
D. The acrobat jumped from platform to platform like Mario.

In this case, the negative connotation of words builds up a particular imagery that creates a negative perception for the reader, which eventually leads to a negative mood.
