Sue: Commercial flights currently contribute more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere in one year than does the whole of Africa. If we want to reduce global warming we need to restrict the number of flights we take.

Dave: Did you know that by taking one inter-continental flight you cause more pollution than you would in twelve months of car travel?

Dave’s response to Sue’s comment serves to

A. reinforce Sue’s contention that flights are a major contributor to increased carbon dioxide levels
B. add more weight to her contention that we should reduce the number of flights we take
C. mitigate the force of her argument by suggesting that there is an alternative approach
D. suggest an alternative that will reduce the effect of pollution
E. question whether she really understands the severity of global warming



all the best peeps..hope u all get it right :)
Reply if anyone wants OE..

Dave is only elaborating Sue's argument by giving a fact. He nowhere comments about reducing the number of flights one takes.

@vards : Could you please post the OE..need to know why is the option A incorrect.

Thank you.

Hello friend..!

here u go..hope it helps u clear ua doubts.. :-D


OE
Since Dave’s comments don’t challenge what Sue says, we can eliminate answers E and C (mitigate = lessen). His comments reinforce what she says and so A sounds tempting but is wrong since Dave talks about pollution in general and doesn’t mention carbon dioxide. Of the remaining choices, B is best since Dave does give information that suggests, like Sue, that we should take fewer flights. (D is incorrect mainly because Dave is not talking about the ‘effect’ of pollution. Note how careful you have to be that all the words in an answer are exactly right.


Please consider kudos if it helped u :-D
