(B) It is in the best interest of property owners to maintain current laws in order to prevent an increase in their property taxes.

Thanks!

Nicely D.

The situation is resolved by explaing a clause of individual property rights

" An individual’s property rights may be infringed upon by other people altering their own property."


Thus activities such as remodeling infringe the neighbours property right.

Hi, noboru!

I think that the argument presents an "apparent" contradiction between individual property rights and restrictions to property owners.

Therefore, the only way to solve the problem is showing that this contradiction isn't real.

IMH, it is exactly what answer D does, telling that those restrictions are helpful to prevent individual property rights.
