Question:

Which of the following versions of the sentence is written correctly?

A Because she wanted to reduce unnecessary waste, Cicily decided to have the television repaired instead of buying a new one.
Explaination

The syntax of this sentence is correct. It uses a comma to offset the subordinate clause (“Because she wanted to reduce unnecessary waste”) from the independent clause (“Cicily decided to have the television repaired instead of buying a new one”). Placing the independent clause, which is the most important idea in the sentence, at the end for emphasis also makes the sentence stronger.
