hey sparky!

2 was simple.the answer is indeed b.however what i really wanted to know was that after reading the question stem which talks about 'surviving a crisis', can we assume what is given in choice a?that is 'overcoming a crisis'?i know under the present set of options this would be ruled out but can we call this a trap?

nothing can be assumed on the gmat.

We may still have to work on the first one.

to survive and to overcome have pretty much identical meanings here.
This can be a trap of course in other situations, i guess but if understand the words' meaning in the context, you should be able always to see the trap.

what's OA for the first one?

Let me try to explain.

Conclusion: IF we are doomed to have drug rehabilitation centres THEN society will pay for local drug rehabilitation centres

Q> society will not pay for local drug rehabilitation centres when?

A: says drug rehabilitation centres are too expensive -> It gives no reason why society cannot pay for them. Society is obliged to pay for them if they are necessary, however expensive they might be.

E: Groups are convinced that rehabilitation centers are ineffective ie. we are not doomed to have them.

It is even a negation of the conclusion:
IF we are NOT doomed to have drug rehabilitation centres THEN society NEED NOT pay for local drug rehabilitation centres
