Some who favor putting governmental enterprises into private hands suggest that conservation objectives would in general be better served if private environmental groups were put in charge of operating and financing the national park system, which is now run by the government.

Which of the following, assuming that it is a realistic possibility, argues most strongly against the suggestion above?

(A) Those seeking to abolish all restrictions on exploiting the natural resources of the parks might join the private environmental groups as members and eventually take over their leadership.
(B) Private environmental groups might not always agree on the best ways to achieve conservation objectives.
(C) If they wished to extend the park system, the private environmental groups might have to seek contributions from major donors and general public.
(D) There might be competition among private environmental groups for control of certain park areas.
(E) Some endangered species, such as the California condor, might die out despite the best efforts of the private environmental groups, even if those groups are not hampered by insufficient resources.

i think A

(A) Those seeking to abolish all restrictions on exploiting the natural resources of the parks might join the private environmental groups as members and eventually take over their leadership. - Hold
(B) Private environmental groups might not always agree on the best ways to achieve conservation objectives. - Damages the argument but still less than A
(C) If they wished to extend the park system, the private environmental groups might have to seek contributions from major donors and general public. - Irrelevant
(D) There might be competition among private environmental groups for control of certain park areas. - Irrelevant, Infact suppports the argument in one way - better results through higher comp.
(E) Some endangered species, such as the California condor, might die out despite the best efforts of the private environmental groups, even if those groups are not hampered by insufficient resources. - Irrelevant

Clearly A seems to be the best option.

+1 for A.

If the people, who can harm the environment , can join private organizations and even take their leadership, the private orgs are not best suited.

Argument: conservation objectives are better served when operated and financed by private groups
Which option strongly refutes this?

A - yes, very strong. Hold
B - oh yea, but not as strong as A
C - far-fetched
D - strengthens. Competition can lead to conservation objectives being even better met
E - huh? Super far-fetched.

It should be A
A - Weakens
B - Partly weakens, and is actually irrelevant
C - Irrelevant
D - Irrelevant
E - Irrelevant
