I don't think any answer is correct actually; as for C we can't rule out the possibility that the 5% of the companies that closed their doors were the source of half the declined pollution.

E strengthens the conclusion, if there were only 2 violators of the law, then most probably the pollution source was the companies that went out of business.

C) Of the businesses that ceased operating in the state during the last ten years, only 5 percent were engaged in air-polluting industries. --> this arguments states that the reduction is due to the act and not because of decline of business. This is a much better answer compared to D...

(D) Several large corporations left the state during the last ten years partly in order to avoid compliance with the Clean Air Act. --> this states that business decline is the reason for the reduce in pollution because the company ceased its operation.

I agree with Qassam. The 5% could be responsible for the 18% fall in pollution. But given the answer choices, I would choose B.

All you guys who stand for "c" are right. E would have been a correct choice had it disclosed who were the violators: Industrial or others. Moreover, E strengthen the argument saying that the regulation is not as effect as it must be-"Only two caught"
