Hi

The new theory says that it is the heat that helps in the columnar growth and not the presence of Carbon-monoxide. A statement that says that they see a growth in the absence of carbon monoxide, and the presence of heat, is the best choice. Looking at the choices, we can eliminate those which says, the presence of carbon-monoxide. Choices C, D, E are out.

We are left with Choice A, and B.

Choice B is wrong, because, it says about Normal Jumpers.
Choice A is correct, because, it refers to the Columnar
Jumper (meaning, Jumpers which have Columnar growth).

Hence A is the best choice.

Correct me, if this is wrong.

Bhai, I believe this question has already been discussed as it sounds very familiar. In any case hereâ€™s what the argument boils down to.
The accepted theory posits that
A high concentration of carbon monoxide causes columnar growth.
The new theory suggests holds that
Persistent heat causes columnar growth
To strengthen the new theory, find a columnar juniper that grows in an atmosphere of intense heat and an absence of carbon monoxide. Hence A.

fact one... columnar growth

fact two: presence of carbon monoxide or the presence of intense heat...

now the new theory goes'' intense heat and not CO that is the causuative factor''

A --> is the bst cos it says 1 columnar growth along with intense heat is seen...
all the others either have noirmal growth and heat or columanr growth with CO presence around...

hope that help!
have fun

So why not take a normal juniper and grow then in the said condition as in B. Why take a columnar Juniper.

HI Bhai

Tha whole issue deals with the Columnar Junipers. THe normal Juniper is out of scope (to confuse you). Unless and otherwise, there is a word mentioned in the original statement about the normal juniper, I would not take that in to account in the analysis.

I hope it is clear.

Regards

The last part of the passage says that is affects their normal growth pattern.

Hi Bhai

Pardon me for the my last post, my words changed the whole meaning of what I intend to say.

Coming to the point...

The questions asks, EXISTENCE of which will support the conclusion the MOST.

We need to look for the EXISTENCE of the juniper, which has changed due to the immense heat and in the absence of carbon ....Statement A says that thy notice the EXISTENCE of the columnar juniper in the presence of heat and absence of Carbon.

Statement B, says that they see, the EXISTENCE of Normal Juniper, in the presence of heat and absence of carbon. If there had been no change in the juniper (in these conditions .. presence of heat and absence of carbon), then it will not support what the conclusion. The author, in the original statement says, that the columnar growth is due to the heat and absence of Carbon.

Statement A clearly shows this reaction, the effect of Heat in the juniper, which has changed a Normal Juniper to a Columnar Juniper.

I hope this time i was able to. If still in question, let me know bro.
Regards
