Need to find something that gives alternative explanation behind why the policy is to dump in sparse areas.

C. Dumping of nuclear waste poses fewer economic and bureaucratic problems in sparsely populated than in densely populated areas.
It is not because the waste is harmful but because economic and bureaucratic reasons, waste is dumped in sparse areas.
I vote C

It is repeatedly claimed that the dumping of nuclear waste poses no threat to people living nearby. If this claim could be made with certainty, there would be no reason for not locating sites in areas of dense population. But the policy of dumping nuclear waste only in the more sparsely populated regions indicates, at the very least, some misgiving about safety on the part of those responsible for policy.
Which one of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the argument?

A. Evaluation plans in the event of an accident could not be guaranteed to work perfectly except where the population is small.

B. In the event of an accident, it is certain that fewer people would be harmed in a sparsely populated than in a densely populated area.

C. Dumping of nuclear waste poses fewer economic and bureaucratic problems in sparsely populated than in densely populated areas.

D. There are dangers associated with chemical waste, and it, too, is dumped away from areas of dense population.

E. Until there is no shred of doubt that nuclear dumps are safe, it makes sense to situate them where they pose the least threat to the public.


It would be really helpful if you could post the OA.

IMO - C
Dumping NW - no threat.
If claim certain - then dump in areas of D. Popu.
But - policy - Dump NW in Sp. Popu.
Indicates, at the very least, some misgiving about safety.

Which one of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the argument?

A. Evaluation plans in the event of an accident could not be guaranteed to work perfectly except where the population is small.
A hint of Safety issue - will not weaken.

B. In the event of an accident, it is certain that fewer people would be harmed in a sparsely populated than in a densely populated area.
A hint of Safety issue - will not weaken.

C. Dumping of nuclear waste poses fewer economic and bureaucratic problems in sparsely populated than in densely populated areas.
Only option left. Clearly shows that Dumping in sp. popu is due to economic and bureau probs, and not a least issue of safety.

D. There are dangers associated with chemical waste, and it, too, is dumped away from areas of dense population.
+ve correlation with Safety issue - Strengthens.

E. Until there is no shred of doubt that nuclear dumps are safe, it makes sense to situate them where they pose the least threat to the public.
A hint of Safety issue - Strengthens misgivings.

It is C. The answer C knocks out the position of the author saying that the reason for creating dumping sites in a sparsely populated area has nothing to do with the safety but only with the burocracy.
