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 biologists claim but not with the politicians 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.



I think this is a really poor question. But maybe im just tired and mad that i didnt get it right.

D seems to be the right one, It is consistent with the biologist claim,but, not with the politician's claim (although not against the politician's claim).

Re: CR- Deforestation [#permalink] New post 19 Nov 2007, 01:36
i am going for ans. A:

The forest is necessary but not sufficient for the survival of the Koala. For which the politicien is claiming the opposite.
So the answer should mention that the forest is important for the koala survival but alone is not sufficient.

(B)

Certainly this is inconsistent with what the politician said.

It's also consistent with what the biologist said - he hasn't ruled out the possibility that other factors could lead to the extinction of the koala.

OA is B. I still dont like this CR. I think it requires u to make an additional assumption.

I was so certain it is D. B seems to make no sense!!! I wish we could verify the authenticity of the answer!!!

I thought the answer was B as my first instinct. But then I thought I was thinking like a simpleton and decided to go with D.

Baaah... I am confused now. Probably would have gotten this wrong on D-Day.

B seems like the right answer to me in that is does indeed fit the question.

It is both inconsistent with the politicians comment, and consistent with the scientist's.

The politician says that Koala can be saved by stopping deforestation , D is the option which reflects that reducing it can help in saving Koals.

I am doing OG10 and am almost a 100% sure that I saw it there. Let me check once am back home and will confirm the source .

The notion that stopping deforestation will save the koala is not inconsistent with D.
