I would go with D as well. If the wild mushrooms are harvested, it stimulates the growth of other mushrooms. The increase in growth of the mushrooms indicates there are more mushrooms available to provide the Douglas furs with the necessary sugars, therefore increasing the fur population.

IMO E

Conclusion - harvesting the chanterelles growing beneath the tree seriously endangers the tree

We have to find an answer that clearly states that the chanterelles will not endanger the tree.

A - irrelevant
B - irrelevant
C - irrelevant
D - irrelevant as we are concerned with the affect on trees
E - CORRECT. If the tree's seedlings are dependent on the filaments for their survival, then this seriously casts a doubt on the endanger philosophy.

OA is wrong according to me. In fact, a lot of OAs on the paper test are wrong.

Hope this helps

D is concerned with the affect on the trees because it provides the necessary sugars the fur needs.

hi i think where u may be going wrong is that it is the harvesting of chanterelles not the chanterelles in the chanterelles will not endanger the tree.
now harvesting means cutting and if the tree's seedlings are dependent on the filaments for their survival, then harvesting is not good for trees growth... in a way it is not casting doubt on conclusion but strengthening it...
D says that harvesting would result in increase in the growth of chanterelles, resulting in turn in tree growth ....
it doubts the conclusion...
