In the years since the city of London imposed strict air-pollution regulations on local industry, the number of bird species seen in and around London has increased dramatically. Similar air-pollution rules should be imposed in other major cities.

Each of the following is an assumption made in the argument above EXCEPT:

(A) In most major cities, air-pollution problems are caused almost entirely by local industry.
(B) Air-pollution regulations on industry have a significant impact on the quality of the air.
(C) The air-pollution problems of other major cities are basically similar to those once suffered by London.
(D) An increase in the number of bird species in and around a city is desirable.
(E) The increased sightings of bird species in and around London reflect an actual increase in the number of species in the area.

Go with A.

Some old question, but interesting.
If the air pollution was casued only partly by local industry, the argument still makes sense.

I think I'll go with A here. The phrase 'almost entirely' is what leads me to make this selection.

I'm not really thrilled about the answer choices though, because it's hard to ascertain the relevance of points raised in B & C. For example B doesn't say 'local industry' as is referred to in other parts of the passage. For C, the passage doesn't say whether air polution problems must be similar for air-pollution regulations to have an effect.

Where did this question come from? And what is the OA/OE?

A is not assumed

city of London imposed regulations on loc industy -> number of birds SEEN increased dramatically.
similar pollution rules should be impose in other cities


(A) In most major cities, air-pollution problems are caused almost entirely by local industry. we can't assume that... because it only says that rules were imposed on local industry... nothing else

(B) assumed... but kind of hazy... I bet this is a trap... but the fact that air pollution regulations took place shows that significant impact on the air quality

(C) if other cities to adopt this same regulation, their pollution must be similar to that of London

(D) definitely assumed... the whole argument is based around the birds

(E) same as D... it is claimed that number SEEN increased, so the total number must be higher as well.
