I think E is right. B doesn't even really make sense. The optimization algorithm is supposed to be used to find out the optimal number of species that can be protected within a hotspot.. It is not a conservation technique to be used in combination with other techniques, nor is it correct to assume that this algorithm would be useful in applying other techniques more efficiently.. Weird if B is the OA

Hi I also thought that it was E, but it is not as E is mentioned in the argument, thus, it is not an inference.

B is an inference as it shows both methods are combined, the argument mentions Method 1 AND Method 2 are used

B it is,

It is an inference question.
As per the argument,
Researchers say that we should use optimization algorithms and conservation methods, so that no aspect of preservation is ignored.

Option B says the exact same thing. So B it is.

It is B straight.

The stimulus initially mentions that biodiversity method is not effective. E twists this and says biodiversity method has better potential which is not true. Potential of biodiversity method is not in question here. Therefore we cannot infer E.

The stimulus provides two steps to improve conservation of species:
1. Use Optimization algorithm to find maximum number of species that can be protected.
2. Use more methods of conservation than are currently being used.

B states exactly the same, use Optimization algorithm along with other conservation techniques.

Hope it helps!

Its B.

We don't have enough information which can help and support option E.
