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.



This question has been discussed so many times already and I really hate to bring it up again. In almost all the posts the reason for answer given is "Entirely" word in option A., but no body has mentioned the "Almost" word preceding the "entirely" word. Does it not mean that most of the pollution is caused by local industry not all the pollution?

Almost entirely can mean 99% of the total pollution but still it is not supported by the argument...the thing is just on the basis of pollution level in London we cannot judge anything about other major cities.

The answer is A.
