The geese that gather at the pond of a large corporation create a hazard for executives who use the corporate helicopter, whose landing site is 40 feet away from the pond. To solve the problem, the corporation plans to import a large number of herding dogs to keep the geese away from the helicopter.
Which of the following, if a realistic possibility, would cast the most serious doubt on the prospects for success of the corporationâ€™s plan?
(A) The dogs will form an uncontrollable pack.
(B) The dogs will require training to learn to herd the geese.
(C) The dogs will frighten away foxes that prey on old and sick geese.
(D) It will be necessary to keep the dogs in quarantine for 30 days after importing them.
(E) Some of the geese will move to the pond of another corporation in order to avoid being herded by the dogs.

This question seemed to be easy for me but I got it wrong!!

This question seemed to be easy for me but I got it wrong!!

I quite have little confuse between A and C. However, choice C mention to the foxes that are not mentioned in the argument. The appearance of the foxes will make possibility that foxes prey on the herb of geese, making more crowd. The dog will help the geese gather at the pond. In this point, also not weaken the conclusion. The helicopter is still distracted by the herb of geese.

Moreover, my question before scanning the answer choice is A.
