According to a book where i finally found this question in it, the best answer is D

Explanation from the book : If the shark can be successfully bred in captivity, it is possible to continue production of the drug without threatning the shark with extinction.

Frankly, i'd say that this question is a bad one because the source is not Official, the correct answer seems not to be the most convincing one and the explanation is short and largely debatable.


I outrightly disagree with your thoughts.
Just because you do not have an official version of the question, does not warrant that the question is not a good question.
Now, for the question above we have an official version.......Option D is dot on point ...and i do not think think that it can be challenged.
Well for the official version of the question.......Check the link below.

http://www.manhattangmat.com/forums/a-d ... t3788.html
http://www.urch.com/forums/gmat-critica ... -wild.html

Going through the explanation you will come to know why E is incorrect...
@carcass i think you must have gone through the question above....its an OG question......


Consider Kudos, If my post helps!!!

There is no change in punctation or anythn else...
Option D and E are the same .....Seeing the questions , which is similar to OG questions, i too get alarmed......
The options are clearly worded..Option e weakens, but option D weakens more severly....the manhattan blog mentioned in my previous post mentions the same thn......
Option E cannot be the correct answer.....

Consider Kudos If my post helps!!

Dear archit.

I said something taht is related in general.

I went over the question at end to embrace a general point of view.

I already forgot about the question: whenever you see something that is not clear......you already are out of the GMAT land. No doubts

Gmat questions are so consistent that you can solve even in 1000 ways.....in the end you have no doubt on what the question is.

regards

Based on the explanation given by Veritasprep instructor and the correlation between Cat and Alfs, E stands out as the answer.!! Frankly, I marked D at first, but reading all the explanations, i changed my mind!

Waiting for the OA!!

Sadly, we do not have Official answer to substantiate to ur opinion.
But i have seen many times ppl ron presenting analogies, but when OA is posted, he appears to be wrong....
i just say one thing if Option D is wrong here than logic to Official question is also wrong

Hey all, I'm not going to get them all right in verbal if that's the debate.

Personally, I really didn't like the use of the term "under the proper conditions" in D, it makes more sense to me that you can't render something extinct if you don't have access to it. They may go extinct on their own but it won't be because of the drug. As mentioned above, this question is a little suspect, but I'm fine with D being the "official" answer as long as the explanation is logical.

Thanks!
-Ron

Ok Guys being serious

The only source of this question is takegmat.com

But the answer, the OA is not given on the website and the question is dated 2010

After a while on google I have founded a bank with this question where the OA is D and the OE is this

Quote:
The best answer is D. If the shark can be successfully bred in captivity, it is possible
to continue production of the drug without threatening the shark with extinction.


This is like saying: the sun rises in the east.......too abvious.

From now on I beg you whenever you share a question to put at the bottom the OA. After all, it is an explicit forum's rule

Thanks
