Fewer elected officials are supporting environment legislation this year than at any time in the last decade.In a study of thirty elected officials, only five were actively campaigning for new environment legislation.This comes at a time when the public's concern for the environment is growing by leaps and bounds.

Which of the following conclusions are supported by the passage above?

a)More elected officials are needed to support environment legislation
b)elected officials have lost touch with the concerns of the public
c)the five elcted officials who actively campaigned for new environment legislation, should be congratulated
d)If the environment is to be saved,elcted officials must support environment legislation
e)If elected officials are truly to represent their constituents, many of them must increase their support of environment legislation

Please give explanations.

Best.

I would go with E. A is close too.

a)More elected officials are needed to support environment legislation
Agr. just says that only 5 are campaining. May be 5 more are supporting and 10 may be enuf to pass legislation. Doesn;t include public concern.


e)If elected officials are truly to represent their constituents, many of them must increase their support of environment legislation

Evidence - officials are not currently supporting the legislation
Evidence - people are highly concerned about env.

concl. to represent these people truly, they must increase support.

E)...IMO A) is out because "more" is too weak. it implies that there are already some. but in fact there are only very very few (indicated by the comparision to the past years). so we need something that indicates that much more are needed to support the environment so that this very low level of supporters comes in line with the public. E) does that by stating "many" and by being more concise.
