Only a reduction of 10 percent in the number of scheduled flights using Greentown's airport will allow the delays that are so common there to be avoided. Hevelia airstrip, 40 miles away, would, if upgraded and expanded, be an attractive alternative for fully 20 percent of the passengers using Greentown airport. Nevertheless, experts reject the claim that turning Hevelia into a full-service airport would end the chronic delays at Greentown.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to justify experts' position?

(A)

Turning Hevelia into a full-service airport would require not only substantial construction at the airport itself, but also the construction of new access highways.

(B)

A second largely undeveloped airstrip close to Greentown airport would be a more attractive alternative than Hevelia for many passengers who now use Greentown.

(C)

Hevelia airstrip lies in a relatively undeveloped area but would, if it became a full-service airport, be a magnet for commercial and residential development.

(D)

If an airplane has to wait to land, the extra jet fuel required adds significantly to the airline's costs.

(E)

Several airlines use Greentown as a regional hub, so that most flights landing at Greentown have many passengers who then take different flights to reach their final destinations.

May I have your views on each answer choice, please.

Thanks.

Answer E

A) This both supports the conclusion (and not reject it). Regardless of cost to for the plan to succeed, its goal is not compromised by thigher cost of proceeding with the plan.
B) Out of scope - we're only concerned with transforming Hevelia airport and not other ones.
C) Irrelevant and somewhat supportive than rejecting the claim. It provides an opposite answer to the one we seek.
D) Irrelevant, because gas cost is not the issue for the airport congestion.
E) OK. Since transferring passengers may be (and actually are) the cause for airplanes to wait on each other before they can depart.
