Brochure: Help conserve our city's water supply. By converting the landscaping in your yard to a water-conserving landscape, you can greatly reduce your outdoor water use. A water-conserving landscape is natural and attractive, and it also saves you money.
Criticism: For most people with yards, the savings from converting to a water-conserving landscape cannot justify the expense of new landscaping, since typically the conversion would save less than twenty dollars on a homeowner's yearly water bills.
Which of the following, if true, provides the best basis for a rebuttal of the criticism?
A. Even homeowners whose yards do not have water-conserving landscapes can conserve water by installing water-saving devices in their homes.
B. A conventional landscape generally requires a much greater expenditure on fertilizer and herbicide than does a water-conserving landscape.
C. A significant proportion of the residents of the city live in buildings that do not have yards.
D. It costs no more to put in water-conserving landscaping than it does to put in conventional landscaping.
E. Some homeowners use more water to maintain their yards than they use for all other purposes combined.

I dont understand why is B.
The brochure is concern with the reduction of outdoor water use, not with other expenses.
Please clarify.

Criticism says that savings in water conserving landscape will be less when compared to conventional landscape.

To refute this we have to show that savings in water conserving landscape will be more.

B does that....A conventional landscape generally requires a much greater expenditure on fertilizer and herbicide than does a water-conserving landscape.

noboru,
the question asks about the "rebuttal of the criticism".. Hence, I think the ans should tell the critics apart from the 20$ advantage, the maintenance of conventional one are costlier than the water-conserving one..

hope it helps.
