There is a very small majority for B and a big minority for D. And almost half of you guys are right.

May be the following will provide the "loosers" an ultimate chance for cracking this CR. If not or if you are tired of it, you can see the complete OE by selecting the passage beneath!

The conclusion is that a developer who wishes to make a large profit would be wise to buy urban waterfront lots and erect residential buildings on them. The basis for that claim is that people pay large sums for beach front homes. We are asked to strengthen this argument.

(A) This choice states that people have more buying power today than in previous centuries. This does not strengthen the claim that a developer will make money on urban waterfront properties.

(B) CORRECT. This choice states that people will be willing to spend large sums of money on properties in predominantly industrial or commercial districts. Since we know from the argument that the urban waterfront has traditionally be industrial, this fact strengthens the claim that a developer can make a profit on urban waterfront properties.

(C) This choice states that many urban waterfront lots are available for purchase. This does not suggest, however, that a developer will be able to sell them after he builds on them.

(D) This choice states that many coastal cities are giving tax breaks to developers who rehabilitate the waterfront. But this does not suggest that anyone will buy the developed properties.

(E) This choice states that properties in the interior of cities are more expensive than those on the waterfront. This does not suggest that a developer can make a profit on waterfront properties.
