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 the 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 it is C because possibility expressed in "C" weakens the following statement :"if private environmental groups were put in charge of operating and financing the national park system"

i go with B, all the other choices seem to be out of scope to me. B gives a nice concise problem that would occur in a general sense of what would happen if a number of groups took over, as opposed to just the government.

Due to this conservation objectives will be lost

(B) Private environmental groups might not always agree on the best ways to achieve conservation objectives.

very strong

(C) If they wished to extend the park system, the private environmental groups might have to seek contributions from major donors and the general public.
There will be no effect on conservation objectives

(D) There might be competition among private environmental groups for control of certain park areas.
There will be no effect on conservation objectives

(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.

Same thing can happen even after the best efforts of governmental enterprises

Its between A and B.

A seems too extreme

B suggests that by handing over the management to various private environmental groups will lead to a chaos and end up without achieving its objectives.

Going for A. A clearly suggests why privatizing national parks may actually be a bad idea.

One more vote for A. E could just as likely happen if the gov't maintained control.
