### HideShow timer Statistics

Editorialist: News media rarely cover local politics thouroughly, and local political business is usually conducted secretively. These factors each tend to isolate local politicians from their electorates. This has the effect of reducing the chance that any particular act of resident participation will elicit a positive official response, which in turn discourages resident participation in local politics.

Which one if the following is most strongly supported by the editorialist's statements?

A) Particular acts of resident participation would be likely to elicit a positive response from local politicians if those polititcians were less isolated from their electorate.

B) Local oilitical business should be conduscted less secretively because this would avoid discouraging resident participation in local politics.

C) The most important factor influencing a resident's decision as to whether to participate in local politics is the chance that the participation will elicit positive official response.

D) More-frequent thourough coverage of local politics would reduce at least one source of discouragement from resident participation in local politics.

E) If resident participation in local politics were not discouraged, this would cause local politicians to be less isolated from their electorate.

Apologies guys. I hope I fixed it this time.

In these questions you usually have to find the answer that must be right and is not too extreme.

A: this may happen buts its not guranteed.

D must be true.
