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 got A.

Argument here:
Private would be better to achieve goal of conservation.

A means that if private group were in charge, all current goals will be gone.
B. Doesn't agree doesn't mean they cannot achieve goal.
C. Out of Scope.
D. Competition is out of scope.
E. Some might died, but the goals is not defined here. Since we don't know the goal, we can't say that won't achieve the goal.

What is OA ?

I still believe B can beat A, while A is still a sound option.

A for me.

In A people can climb their way up and influence the decisions of these organizations to their favor. IN a govt organization it would be difficult to do it.

i take A on this one.

A is totally against the conservation where as B is not. B says private environmental groups could chose the second best or next to it instead of best without destroying the conservation objectives.

so A is best.

Straight A


Conservation goals...... better met

A) weakens this the most, as it allows exploiters to take over, where as they can't do that now. So instead of better serving conservation, it could actually weaken it... none of the other ones provide anything similar.
