Almost all of the books published in the past 150 years were printed on acidic paper. Unfortunately, every kind of acidic paper gradually destroys itself due to its very acidity. This process of deterioration can be slowed if the books are stored in a cool, dry environment. Techniques, which are now being developed, to deacidify books will probably be applied only to books with historical significance.
If all of the statements in the passage above are true, which one of the following must also be true?
(A) If a book was published in the past 150 years and is historically insignificant, it will probably deteriorate completely.
(B) Almost all of the books published in the past 150 years will gradually destroy themselves.
(C) Almost all of the books that gradually deteriorate are made of acidic paper.
(D) If a book is of historical significance and was printed before 150 years ago, it will be deacidified.
(E) Books published on acidic paper in 1900 should now all be at about the same state of deterioration.

Should be A.
If a book has historical significance, it might be saved.

We are not sure whether it will deteriorate completely. We can only say that it will deteriorate. Hence, A is an extreme statement. No?

You are right. Same thing with B too.

First line says ....
Almost all of the books published in the past 150 years were printed on acidic paper. If historical importance books are saved through some latest
technology then they may not deteriorate .
But B) says ...Almost all of the books published in the past 150 years will gradually destroy themselves. -- not fully true....

A says
Since passage says only historical books are saved through some technology, all other books are going to deteriorate fully in the future...

hmm..lets see this way..

argument says "Almost all of the books published in the past 150 years were printed on acidic paper. Unfortunately, every kind of acidic paper gradually destroys itself due to its very acidity"..................

If we ask somebody to fill in above blank, what we will he/she write? :wink:

Tough one to call between A and B. I think that since the process is Being developed, almost all the books will deteriorate (no discrimination here allowed). However, there is a fine line between these two choices. Really tough one!
