Its clearly asked in the question that we have to undermine both.....hence there cannot be any compromise with undermining just one.
I think C undermines best as it says there was no export hence a potential foreign country market remains unexploited which leads to weakening in terms of economics.
Second Its clearly stated that even the new cars also cause pollution and hence there is no reason to think that these new cars which will be sold only in the home county will not spread pollution.
Hence i think option C finds a mid way pathway to weaken both. we must not forget an option need not weaken 100% .....
E IMO cannot be an option as it is specifically mentioned in the question that we have to weaken both the aims not just. We cannot rephrase the question as we like.


Dear Archit143,

Tell me what does the following mean?

It is not likely that both of the aims will be met.


Hi
Its clear enough "It is not likely that both of the aims will be met...".
Moreover the question asks to select an option that weaken both aims of the plan.....


I understand the source of confusion. Consider the sentence: It is likely that he understands both English and French, and consider the sentence: It is not likely he understands both English and French.

Does not the second sentence imply that he probably understands only one of them?

In general when you negate something that refers to two things or persons, you imply that only one of them is referred to.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the likelihood that the planned incentives, if implemented, will achieve both of the cited aims?
The question stem states which of the following will show that if planned incentive is implemented both the cited aims will be met.....Even if neglect the if part it comes out to be Which of the following will weaken the planned incentive to achieve both of its goals.
How can than we rephrase from our comfort and say it just says to weaken one of the goal

Ok, I will keep it simple. What does "not both" mean?

Does it mean:

(1) neither
or
(2) only one of them

Also to mean "none of the two aims will be achieved" , we use neither of the two and not both.

Agree with you Sri.
Moreover, apart from E, none of the answer choices seem even close being the answer.
