Many collegues around me encountered this CR question in real GMAT test recently. Try it!

in 1992 outlaw fishing boats began illegally harvesting lobsters from the terriotrial waters of the country of Beluka. Soon after, the annual tonnage of lobster legally harvested in Belukian waters began decling; in 1996, despite there being no reduction in the level of legal lobster fishing activity, the local catch was 9,000 tons below pre-1992 levels. It is therefore highly likely that the outlaw fishing boats harvested about 9,000 tons of lobster illegally that years.


find assumption of the argument

A. The illegal lobster harvesting was not so extensive that the population of catchable lobsters in Belukia's territorial waters had sharply declined by 1996.

B. The average annual lobster catch, in tons, of an outlaw fishing boat has increased steadily since 1992.

C. Outlaw fishing boats do not, as a group, harvest more lobsters than do licensed lobster-fishing boats.

D. The annual legal lobster harvest in Belukia in 1996 was not significantly less than 9,000 tons.

E. A significant proportion of Belukia's operators of licensed lobster-fishing boats went out of business between 1992 and 1996.

I'll go for A.

In this case to draw the conclusion, we need to assume that all conditions remains same. A gives one of the condition.
