Shouldn't the answer be (E)? The question is asking for one that is consistent with biologist and not consistent with politician. I'm going with (E) - with the same reasoning as the above.

B

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

(B) Deforestation is stopped and the koala becomes extinct. - only B contradicts directly politician.

Translate our problem to language of symbols :)

[x] - koala becomes extinct
not[x] - koala survives.
[p] - pace of forest disappearance
[pr] - present pace of forest disappearance



“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.

the biologist: if [p]>=[pr] then [x]
the politician: if [p]=0 then not[x]


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

the biologist: can be true
the politician: must be false


(A) Deforestation continues and the koala becomes extinct: [p]>0 (we don't know exactly a pace of deforestation) and not[x]: the biologist: can be true; the politician: can be true
(B) Deforestation is stopped and the koala becomes extinct: [p]=0 and [x]: the biologist: can be true; the politician: false
(C) Reforestation begins and the koala survives: [p]<0 and not[x]: the biologist: can be true; the politician: can be true
(D) Deforestation is slowed and the koala survives: [pr]>[p]>0 and not[x]: the biologist: can be true; the politician: true
(E) Deforestation is slowed and the koala approaches extinction. [pr]>[p]>0 and [x]: the biologist: can be true; the politician:can be true


Looks terrible but hope it help :wink:
