Mayor: In each of the past five years, the city has
cut school funding and each time school
officials complained that the cuts would force
them to reduce expenditures for essential
services. But each time, only expenditures for
nonessential services were actually reduced.
So school officials can implement further cuts
without reducing any expenditures for essential
services.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly sup-
ports the mayor’s conclusion?
(A) The city’s schools have always provided
essential services as efficiently as they have
provided nonessential services.
(B) Sufficient funds are currently available to allow
the city’s schools to provide some nonessential
services.
(C) Price estimates quoted to the city’s schools for
the provision of nonessential services have not
increased substantially since the most recent
school funding cut.
(D) Few influential city administrators support the
funding of costly nonessential services in the
city’s schools.
(E) The city’s school officials rarely exaggerate the
potential impact of threatened funding cuts.

Plz, explain your answer

(A) The city’s schools have always provided
essential services as efficiently as they have
provided nonessential services.
--- Wrong. Efficiency is out of scope

(B) Sufficient funds are currently available to allow
the city’s schools to provide some nonessential
services.
--- Correct. In order to not allocate funds from essential services sufficient funds from nonessential services needs to be available.

(C) Price estimates quoted to the city’s schools for
the provision of nonessential services have not
increased substantially since the most recent
school funding cut.
---- unreleated

(D) Few influential city administrators support the
funding of costly nonessential services in the
city’s schools.
--- unreleated

(E) The city’s school officials rarely exaggerate the
potential impact of threatened funding cuts.
--- so what...???
