A question of Degree [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2004, 14:12
Can some one rationalize through the answer?
The element of difficulty seems to be embedded in determining the 'degree of practicability' of each of the answers. How do you guys go about approaching such questions tinged with subjective-dilemmas?

15. Some who favor putting governmental enterprises into private hands suggest that conservation objectives would in general be better served if private environmental groups were put in charge of operating and financing the national park system, which is now run by the government.

Which of the following, assuming that it is a realistic possibility, argues most strongly against the suggestion above?

(A) Those seeking to abolish all restrictions on exploiting the natural resources of the parks might join the private environmental groups as members and eventually take over their leadership.

(B) Private environmental groups might not always agree on the best ways to achieve conservation objectives.

(C) If they wished to extend the park system, the private environmental groups might have to seek contributions from major donors and the general public.

(D) There might be competition among private environmental groups for control of certain park areas.

(E) Some endangered species, such as the California condor, might die out despite the best efforts of the private environmental groups, even if those groups are not hampered by insufficient resources.

An OG question

To me, there are at least 3 potential suitors. Needless to say I'm being somewhat miserly in my elimination process. Will post answer shortly

I would pick B. C, D and E out of context. Between A and B, B is better.

I will pick A, because it shows a real disadvantage of putting the park into private hands.

Answer B may be confusing too, but it is too extreme, using extreme world such as not always...

Would go with "A". B doesn't make sense as it may be possible that even with private concerns not agreeing on something, they can still get the job done.

Aint that too imaginative for ...ETS at any rate [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2004, 11:29
Isn't A too imaginative for it to be practicable?

Answer acc to OG is A.

Are we to assume that members inimical to the cause of the (pressure) group, principally conservation, will be allowed to steer it away from its course so deftly?

I'd be indebted to those who can provide their rationale for being able to eliminate [C] at first sight.
