Which of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the conclusion drawn above?

(A) The number of wild mushrooms harvested has increased in recent years.
(B) Chanterelles grow not only beneath Douglas firs but also beneath other host trees.
(C) Many types of wild mushrooms are found only in forests and cannot easily be grown elsewhere.
(D) The harvesting of wild mushrooms stimulates future growth of those mushrooms.
(E) Young Douglas fir seedlings die without the nutrients and water provided by chanterelle filaments.

hey mind revealing the source?

if you know the meaning of HARVEST , that's straight D
if you do know the meaning of HARVEST ( you may think it's some kinda growing) , the answer is straight E :D

I picked D...There is no threat to the tree if you harvest the mushroom because more mushroom will grow and will continue support the tree.

Choice D. It basically says that the shrooms don't really go away thereby negating the supposed risk of removing them.

I seriously doubt that E is the right answer.

The conclusion in the passage is "harvesting the chanterelles growing beneath a Douglas fir seriously endangers the tree."

Option D states about "The harvesting of wild mushrooms" but nothing specific about Chanterelles which are "a" type of wild mushrooms. Moreover, wild mushrooms can grow beneath any tree not only beneath Douglas Fir.

Option E says "Young Douglas fir seedlings die without the nutrients" - which refutes Chanterelles poised as endangering Douglas fir. I think it should be E. I would be glad to know the source

I think it should be E

IMO D) .... since number of mushrooms keep on growing even when they are harvested it does not endager the tree.

E) actually supports the argument.

I agree that E supports the argument,,As conclusion is cutting the trees would endanger the tree,,,,We have find option which doesn't endanger the tree how come the option D is applicable??? The harvesting of wild mushrooms stimulates future growth of those mushrooms. Kindly brief it, thank you
