If A weren`t true, then the argument would fall apart. B goes too far using the extreme claim "any" when in fact the evidence in the passage clearly states "sometimes." E does a "180."

I also got A when I sued the denial test.

If it wasn't so, then the passage would not quote the chance that an earthquake has such a low chance to erupt in such an area.

hm? C) ! "In a geologically quiet region NOT every potential nuclear reactor site is near at least one minor fault." that means that some reactors are not near to minor faults and are even less likely to be struck by an earthquake.

A) is out b/c there may be regions that are safer BUT we dont know if there are reactors.
