Biodiesel is a fuel that can be used in most road vehicles instead of gasoline. Its use produces significantly less air pollution. Market research predicts that as this fuel becomes more widely available over the next ten years or so, hundreds of thousands of drivers will use it. We can only conclude, then, that many people care about reducion pollution.
Which of the following if true, most strengthens this argument ?
A. Many individuals try to minimize their driving in order to reduce pollution.
B Biodiesel fuel costs 10% to 20% more than gasoline
C New environmental laws may require a reduction in the amount of pollution new cars produce
D A significant amount of air pollution comes from sources other than automobiles.
E. Increased use of biodiesel will reduce the need to import gasoline from other countries
OA to follow
I changed my answer from A to B because even with the cost of biodiesel 10 to 20 % more than that of gasoline, the research predicts that hundreds and thousands of drivers will use biodiesel - this implies that people really care about reducing pollution.
A can be dismissed because, though it shows that people care about reducing pollution, it does not use the evidence stated in the argument
