Proponents of the electric car maintain that when the technical problems associated with its battery design are solved, such cars will be widely used and, because they are emission-free, will result in an abatement of the environmental degradation caused by auto emissions. But unless we dam more rivers, the electricity to charge these batteries will come from nuclear or coal-fired power plants. Each of these three power sources produces considerable environmental
damage. Thus, the electric car _______.
Which one of the following most logically completes the argument?
(A) will have worse environmental consequences than its proponents may believe
(B) will probably remain less popular than other types of cars
(C) requires that purely technical problems be solved before it can succeed
(D) will increase the total level of emissions rather than reduce it
(E) will not produce a net reduction in environmental degradation

i go with A...

The author with all his reasoning says that switching to electric cars won’t necessarily reduce environmental damage.

(A) will have worse environmental consequences than its proponents may believe- Seems to be better option- hold.
(B) will probably remain less popular than other types of cars- Info can be true sometime but not always true,
(C) requires that purely technical problems be solved before it can succeed- uses similar terminology as in the passage but presents irrelevant information
(D) will increase the total level of emissions rather than reduce it- Too extreme or out of scope.
(E) will not produce a net reduction in environmental degradation- the author never compares levels of environmental damage. So out..


A is the correct answer. Please post the exact source of the question. Is it a LSAT question??
