9.
Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity of providing those services. But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it, and that is particularly troublesome in these times of strained financial resources. However, since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services, and since such services are socially necessary, the government is certain to respond.

Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The quality of child care will improve.
(B) The cost of providing child-care services will increase.
(C) the government will use funding to foster advances in child care.
(D) if public criticism of policy is strongly voiced, the government is certain to respond.
(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.

Please explain.

Basically, argument says if X then Y
E says if not X then not Y. This is not true because if not X, Y could still increase for reasons other than X. This means that the cost of providing child care could still increase even though there is no government regulation (ie inflation, unexpected growth in demand for childcare services, shortage of childcare services, etc.)

B is my choice. Government is going to regulate the service. Under financial contraints the cost is going to increase, so the cost of child care is surely going to increase.
