If the forest continues to disappear at its present pace, the koala will approach extinction, said the biologist.

So all that is needed to save the koala is to stop deforestation, said the politician.

Which one of the following statements is consistent with the biologist's claim but not with the politician's claim?

(A) Deforestation continues and the koala becomes extinct.

(B) Deforestation is stopped and the koala becomes extinct.

(C) Reforestation begins and the koala survives.

(D) Deforestation is slowed and the koala survives.

(E) Deforestation is slowed and the koala approaches extinction.


Please explain your answer.

I will go with B.
My reasoning: Biologist is saying that deforestation is causing Koala to approach extinction. There may be various factors leading to this such as echo system damage etc.
Politician is just looking at from one angle and expects the Koala to survive merely because deforestation is stopped.
If B is true it completely refutes politicians reasoning but still might not refute biologists cliam.

anandnk,
Whats wrong with E? I did not choose B because B seems to be a bit hard statement. On the other hand, the biologist used a mild statement like 'approach extinction'. So I thought 'approach extinction' is better than 'becomes extinct'.

Please clarify.

Thanks.

Well E is the next contender. But politician is talking about stopping the deforestation. So if his advice is implemented and the result is -ve then it is not consitant with what he said. If you slow the deforestation and the Koala becomes extinct then he might come out and say "hey I told u to stop the deforestation and not just slow it down, did u hear what the biologist said, no wonder Koala became extinct"

You know how manipulative these politicians are.

I hope I am right.

I think D also qualifies the critarion.

because

Deforestation is slowed ( But not stopped) : Biologist agree , politician doesn't
the koala survives.

what is the official answer.
