Correct option is
D

no article

Paper is an uncountable noun unless a numeral adjective is used. Here, paper, in general, is being mentioned, hence no article is required. Option D is correct here. Indefinite articles are not used for uncountable nouns, hence their usage in the given context is incorrect. 'The' is used for specific nouns, the noun being non-specific here, makes Option C incorrect.
