Pedro: Unlike cloth diapers, disposable diapers are a threat to the environment. Sixteen billion disposable diapers are discarded annually, filling up landfills at an alarming rate. So people must stop buying disposable diapers and use cloth diapers.

Maria: But you forget that cloth diapers must be washed in hot water, which requires energy. Moreover, the resulting wastewater pollutes our rivers. When families use diaper services, diapers must be delivered by fuel-burning trucks that pollute the air and add to traffic congestion.

Maria objects to Pedro’s argument by
(A) claiming that Pedro overstates the negative evidence about disposable diapers in the course of his argument in favor of cloth diapers

(B) indicating that Pedro draws a hasty conclusion, based on inadequate evidence about cloth diapers

(C) pointing out that there is an ambiguous use of the word “disposableâ€

I think we are looking at C here.

There is nothing in the statement that claims that the energy, water waste, and fuel polution are more dangerous than the landfills.

All the counter argument points out is that he has not taken into consideration how cloth diapers effect the enviornment.

I wrote C while looking at B, I myself am too hasty at times.

yea B is the way to go , D is wrong because no where does the argument state that cloth diapers are a more serious threat than disposable diapers, it just states that cloth diapers arent that great either
