Foxes generally keep off from human neighborhoods, for fear of hounded out ruthlessly. Yet prior to 1950, considerable domestic animals such as lambs, sheep, which are delicacy for the foxes, were lost some sudden increase in population. . In order to control the over-population, the government kicked off a scheme in 1950 to give incentive fox-hunters and a sizable number of foxes were either killed or incapacitated from hunting between 1950 and 955. . Yet the attacks on domesticated animals by foxes increased dramatically in the same period.
.
Which of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent discrepancy in the passage above?

A. Populations of deer and other wild animals that foxes typically prey on increased significantly in numbers from 1950 to 1955
B. Prior to 1950, there were no legal restrictions on the hunting of foxes
C. After 1950, the fox –hunters, in their greed to gain incentives wounded more foxes than killing them, thereby greatly diminishing the foxes’ ability to prey on wild animals.
D. Domestic animals are poor defenders form attacks from foxes.
E. The systematic hunting of foxes drove many to migrate to remote mountain areas uninhabited by humans, leading to wolves attacking the domestic animals.

IMO C

A. Populations of deer and other wild animals that foxes typically prey on increased significantly in numbers from 1950 to 1955:This may be tempting, but we are finding the reasons for increase in attack on domesticated animals, and the population of wild animals is out of scope
B. Prior to 1950, there were no legal restrictions on the hunting of foxes :This statement has nothing to do with the attacks on domesticated animals, so out of scope.
C. After 1950, the fox –hunters, in their greed to gain incentives wounded more foxes than killing them, thereby greatly diminishing the foxes’ ability to prey on wild animals. Yes, the ability of foxes to attack the wild animals has diminished, that could be a reason for increase in attacks on domesticated animals.
D. Domestic animals are poor defenders form attacks from foxes. Ok the domestic animals are poor defenders and they were in the past also, so this statement does not tell us that how the attacks got increased in a specific period of time.
E. The systematic hunting of foxes drove many to migrate to remote mountain areas uninhabited by humans, leading to wolves attacking the domestic animals We are concerned about the attacks on domesticated animals by foxes, so wolves are out of scope.
