Environmental organizations want to preserve the land surrounding the Wilgrinn Wilderness Area from residential development. (goal of the organization
They plan to do this by purchasing that land from the farmers who own it.(how they plan to do so
(in this part a fact is presented, no personal opinion is expressed
)That plan is ill-conceived
:(as you can see here starts the reasoning of the author, and it starts with its CONCLUSION, which is going to be explained in the next part
if the farmers did sell their land, they would sell it to the highest bidder, and developers would outbid any other bidders.(reason for the conclusion
On the other hand, these farmers will never actually sell any of the land, provided that farming it remains viable. (a problem is presented
But farming will not remain viable if the farms are left unmodernized, and most of the farmers lack the financial resources modernization requires.(another personal consideration that is leading to the conclusion in the last sentence
And that is exactly why a more sensible preservation strategy would be to assist the farmers to modernize their farms to the extent needed to maintain viability.
(the author gives his own method to solve the main problem expressed in line 1
In the argument as a whole, the two boldface proportions play which of the following roles?
(A)The first assesses the goal held by certain environmental organization;the second presents the logical goal that the reasoning concludes should be adopted instead
(B)The first assesses the goal held by certain environmental organization:the second presents the strategy that the reasoning concludes has the best chance of reaching that goal.
A and B are wrong: the first one is the conclusion.
(C)The first is the conclusion reached about one strategy for attaining a certain goal ; the second presents the strategy that the reasoning advocates
(D)The first is the main conclusion toward which the reasoning is directed;The second presents a strategy that is called sensible but for which no support is offered.
Support IS offered for the strategy. (second to last line)
(E)The first is the main conclusion toward which the reasoning is directed;The second is a consideration raised in order to support that conclusion
The second is an alternative strategy, not a consideration
It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge that begins with experience.
