Argument : Industrialists say that high voltage transmission lines ban on the basis of health hazards should not be done.

A) It ignores causes of cancer other than high voltage transmission lines. - causes of cancer is not the argument.
B) It neglects the damaging effects that high voltage transmission lines might have on groups of people other than children. Criticizes the argument. Correct.
C) High voltage transmission lines interfere with other radio devices such as antennas, satellites and cellphones. radio devices doesnt impact the argument.
D) Most children would prefer to live in areas that are away from high voltage transmission lines. This doesnt criticise the argument.
E) Legislation banning high voltage transmission lines around school districts is easy to enforce. Doesnt correlate with the argument.

Choice B is the correct answer, uncovering the assumption of the author "High voltage only causes the hazard damage to only children".
