The earthâ€™s resources are being depleted much too fast. To correct this, the United States must keep its resource consumption at present levels for many years to come.
Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument above?
(A) New resource deposits are constantly being discovered.
(B) The United States consumes one-third of all resources used in the world.
(C) Other countries need economic development more than the United States does.
(D) Other countries have agreed to hold their resource consumption at present levels.
(E) The United States has been conserving resources for several years.
D can't be the answer because, if the US consume very little of energy resources (say 0.01%), then there is no point in the US maintaining it resource consumption levels. Because its proportion is too small.
B says that the US consumes 1/3 rd of the total resources consumed. Hence, in order to minimize any resource consumption in the world, the US has maintain its current levels for many years to come.
