Environmentalists [#permalink] New post 17 Sep 2007, 19:41
So-called environmentalists have argued that the proposed Golden Lake Development would interfere with bird-migration patterns. However, the fact that these same people have raised environmental objections to virtually every development proposal brought before the council in recent years indicates that their expressed concern for bird-migration patterns is nothing but a mask for their antidevelopment, antiprogress agenda. Their claim, therefore, should be dismissed without further consideration.

For the claim that the concern expressed by the so-called environmentalists is not their real concern to be properly drawn on the basis of the evidence cited, which one of the following must be assumed?

(A) Not every development proposal opposed in recent years by these so-called environmentalists was opposed because they believed it to pose a threat to the environment.
(B) People whose real agenda is to block development wherever it is proposed always try to disguise their true motives.
(C) Anyone who opposes unrestricted development is an opponent of progress.
(D) The council has no reason to object to the proposed Golden Lake Development other than concern about the development’s effect on bird-migration patterns.
(E) When people say that they oppose a development project solely on environmental grounds, their real concern almost always lies elsewhere.

I ll go with B.

A) it is proving the contrary

C) This is way too general an assumption

D) This does not take the past example into consideration.

E) its trying to pin point on environmental grounds, while the assumption should be more generic like the ways its in B. This is however close.

E seems best.

The author concluded that since the environmentalists raised environmental concerns to virtually every developement project, so the concerns are nothing more than a mask for their true agenda. For this to hold, it must assumed that whenever someone opposes a development project soley on environemtnal conerns, he or she msut have a hidden agenda.

Sorry the OA is B. All such difficult CRs are from LSAT. Well I take approximately 4+ minutes to sove such CRs.

Well if you assume E then how you are going to distinguish between true environmental opposition VS fake environmental opposition.
Only B fits the argument. I know B is not too much convincing but thats how the LSAT CRs are. they are subtle, ambiguous and too hard for GMATers.
