B. Because it appears that no one is interested in killing the geese, so , lifting restrictions is not going to change the status quo.

the restriction, ie the conclusion of the argument, no longer makes sense

Yes this one doesn't seem to be very straight forward at all ...

Some species of Arctic birds are threatened by recent sharp increases in the population of snow geese, which breed in the Arctic and are displacing birds of less vigorous species. Although snow geese are a popular quarry for hunters in the southern regions where they winter, the hunting season ends if and when hunting has reduced the population by five percent, according to official estimates. Clearly, dropping this restriction would allow the other species to recover.

Fact: Snow geese has sharp increase in population and thus threaten the other birds.
Fact: Hunting for snow geese will be over if population is reduced by 5%.
Argument: Dropping the restricition will kill more snow geese thus lessen the threat to other birds.

Ask for weaken.

Quote:
A.Hunting limits for snow geese were imposed many years ago in response to a sharp decline in the population of snow geese.

strenthen.
Quote:
B.It has been many years since the restriction led to the hunting season for snow geese being closed earlier than the scheduled date.

Meaning if we drop the restriction more geese will be killed. Strengthen.
Quote:
C.The number of snow geese taken by hunters each year has grown every year for several years.

Meaning they'll kill even more this year, with the drop of the restriction. Not weaken.
Quote:
D.As their population has increased, snow geese have recolonized wintering grounds that they had not used for several seasons.

This might be it. The restriction is only for the southen region. If the geese are somewhere else then dropping the restriction ma not help.
Quote:
E.In the snow goose’s winter habitats, the goose faces no significant natural predation.

That's why we need to drop the restriction and hunt more geese. Strength.

The only one that sounds plausible is D for me.

Some species of Arctic birds are threatened by recent sharp [#permalink] New post 02 Nov 2006, 21:25
Some species of Arctic birds are threatened by recent sharp increases in the population of snow geese, which breed in the Arctic and are displacing birds of less vigorous species. Although snow geese are a popular quarry for hunters in the southern regions where they winter, the hunting season ends if and when hunting has reduced the population by five percent, according to official estimates. Clearly, dropping this restriction would allow the other species to recover.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the argument?

(A) Hunting limits for snow geese were imposed many years ago in response to a sharp decline in the population of snow geese.
(B) It has been many years since the restriction led to the hunting season for snow geese being closed earlier than the scheduled date.
(C) The number of snow geese taken by hunters each year has grown every year for several years.
(D) As their population has increased, snow geese have recolonized wintering grounds that they had not used for several seasons.
(E) In the snow goose’s winter habitats, the goose faces no significant natural predation.

go for D

experience has shown that if goose population increase then they recolonazie wintering grounds they have not used.
we can conclude that if hunting cease then gooses will spread and endanger other species.
