Will go with A.

The author gives us two reasons for the decline in the population of sea otters. - predation or Disease.

He leans on disease by dawing an analogy between seals, sea lions and sea otters.

A gives us support to the predation theory.

Looks like you too gave GMATPrep on the weekend.

A is the clear winner.

It provides reason that whales are responsible for decline and not due to disease

Why is B incorrect though? Doesn't it weaken (contradict) the argument by saying that the population actually didn't decline but that there was a migration of sea otters?

A..
Not B because - conclusion is that its desease that decreased the population..
So we have to weaken this statement.. A does a better job..

Definitely A here...

B is incorrect because it deals with general 1980s... vs... the argument talks about late 1980s

Only (A) hints of another cause of the decline in the otter population. (Actually, they were probably hunted for their pelts :twisted: )
