i'm thinking about D.

A) goes along both claims => not correct we need biologist claim, but not politician.
B) violates both claims
C) irrelevant nothing is mentioned of reforestation.
D) ok since slowing down deforestation helps the coala [claim 1], but this is not the same as stoping deforestation [claim 2 is violated]
E) violates claim 1

therefore answer D.

where did you get this quesiton from. post the source, pls ;]] those are good :beer

Not B, after rereading it. I notice that Deforestation and Stopped is misleading folks about the true meaning of option B.
Definitely not B.

OA pls.

Got it. by stopping, the action also includes slowing the process down. Very good and thanks.

Hi everyone, thanks for your answers....

actually the OA is B,

i stuck between B and D.... IMO both of them are consistent with the biologist’s claim but not with the politician’s claim .... so, i'm not convinced yet..... :? :? :?

i found a discussion here too,

http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic ... +disappear

gmatpipo, I dont see how D contradicts what the politician is saying.

Deforestation is the process of clearing of forests. The politician is saying that if we stop the process we may be able to save the Koala.

D: Deforestation is slowed and the koala survives - Basically says that the process of clearing of forests has slowed down and so there are still enough forests that they have not become extinct YET.

It actually agrees with the politician's train of thought.

B on the other hand says that though the process of clearing the forests has stopped the Koala has become extinct, it is contradictory to the politician's belief.

gayathri, The politician's claim is to stop deforestation while the biologist's claim is to slow the process of deforestation, so 'B' does not contradict the politician's claim.

rthothad, I am not sure I agree with your reasoning. It does not say anywhere that the biologist wants to slow the process of deforestation. All that he is saying is that deforestation is bad for the koalas survival.

gayathri, The biologist's argument reads that "If the forest continues to disappear at its present pace, the koala will approach extinction", so the biologist is in favor of slowing the process of deforestation

Why do you specifically say "slowing" dont you think he would be happier if it were completely stopped and ecstatic if reforestation is done?

I think you are thinking outside the box on this one... Since its not stated, for all we know, it could just be a neutral observation that the biologist is making.

Becos I think the emphasis is on "disappear at its present pace"
