It is better for the environment if as much of all packaging as possible is made from materials that are biodegradable in landfills. Therefore, it is always a change for the worse to replace packaging made from paper or cardboard with packaging made from plastics that are not biodegradable in landfills.

Which of the following, if true, constitutes the strongest objection to the argument above?

A The paper and cardboard used in packaging are usually not biodegradable in landfills.
B Some plastic used in packaging is biodegradable in landfills.
C In many landfills, a significant proportion of space is taken up by materials other than discarded packaging materials.
D It is impossible to avoid entirely the use of packaging materials that are not biodegradable in landfills.
E Sometimes, in packaging an item, plastics that are not biodegradable in landfills are combined with cardboard.

A

The choice is between A and B, as others are either out of scope or irrelvant.

B says taht some plastic used in packaging is biodegradable inf landfills, but question says that "with packaging made from plastics that are not biodegradable in landfills". Here it tells about the specific plastic.

A is the only correct choice.

def A. If cardboard and paper dont biodegrade then the argument is weakened.

guys, i really think it's E. it says that "it is ALWAYS a change for the worst" when replacing paper and cardboard with the nonbiodegradable plastic. As it says in E, if sometimes the nonbiodegradable plastic is combined with cardboard, then you haven't changed anything in terms of getting worst, right? I think A is not complete. even if it is true about the cardboard, how can you justify the switching is for the worst when there isn't any comment about plastic? What I like about E, it actually connected the 2 products. that's what i think at least.
