b) Hunters under the age of 21 don’t need to sign the alcohol pledge because they are not
legally allowed to drink alcohol under any circumstances.
c) If a person last completed the safety program six years ago, he will have to complete the
program again before he can be eligible for a permit.
d) Someone who isn’t 18 years old cannot obtain a hunting permit in this state.

ensure that nobody gets hurt.

How could option

be correct?

May be he could & be eligible for the permit in some other state. Isn't this option covers all the states than the "certain" state that is discussed in the stimulus?

IMO correct answer is choice C.
A) All states have the same requirements for hunting permits. We dont know about laws of other states from stimulus.
B) Hunters under the age of 21 don’t need to sign the alcohol pledge because they are not legally allowed to drink alcohol under any circumstances. Cannot be concluded from argument.
C) If a person last completed the safety program six years ago, he will have to complete the program again before he can be eligible for a permit. Correct, as req of safety program within last 5 yrs is cited in argument.
D) Someone who isn’t 18 years old cannot obtain a hunting permit in this state. It does not clarify about the group >18 yrs & <18 Yrs.
E) Hunting is such a dangerous activity that state controls and requirements are necessary to ensure that nobody gets hurt. Out of scope.

Partially agree with you point. Nevertheless, no other answer than this one sounds convincing. So pick this one and move on.

Cheers!

thought D was the answer but later realized that it's a shell game answer

negated option 'D' because atleast 18 means greater than equal to 18.
so 18 year old is infact wil get permit if he folow al the pre-set rules.

I went with (C) just to be super safe but what's wrong with (B)
Is it that we cannot assume that the legal drinking age is 21 because it is not stated explicitly in the passage?

i went with D. But i realized my mistake..i assumed the meaning of 'Someone who isn’t 18 years old' as less than 18...super trap.
