Opening a retail business in Kosovo is not inadvisable, despite what critics of the plan may say. Eighteen years ago we opened a construction business in Beirut during an invasion, and that location has been generating profits ever since.

Which of the following is the author of the above argument trying to imply?

a) The proposed retail store can make money despite being in the middle of a war zone.

b) Wars are profitable for retail.

c) Kosovo is not as politically unstable as Beirut.

d) Opponents of a new construction company in Kosovo are probably biased.

e) The proposed company in Kosovo will do better than the construction company in Beirut.

Agree with A.

B sounds convincing , but is too strong. the arguments say "not inadvisable"

The "can" in A makes the choice reasonable enough.

The author is using his prior experience to make a generalization. If he thought wars were profitable, he would be more encouraging of the venture instead of "not inadvisable." (B) is a matter of degree; he is implying that war is not bad for business, but he is not arguing that war is good for business. (A) is the correct answer.
