From where is this question? The question is confusing because it is saying that the signs are going to become dangerous and unusable. Do they mean the signs or do they mean the highways?

Conclusion is "the goverment must continue to employ these dedicated repair crews".
Premise: Signs will become unusable causing accidents.

1: Not Relevant
2: Not Relevant, it says traffic is blocked because of repair but does not talk about any alternative as signs are required.
3: Best choice, cost decreases so no point for goverment to employ these special crew.
4: Strengthen Conclusion
5: Strengthen Conclusion

I pick (C) but I have to say that the language of the question is very confusing.

I was highly confused between dedicated repair crews and sign-repair crews. are these 2 different crews? if not, then why did the author use two different terms to refer to the same group?

Yeah. If C is true you don't need the workers anymore and the argument is undermined considerably.

clearly, if the if the cost of replacement is lesser than the repair of the sign board than there is no need for repair workers hence the C is right
