The Governor's recent direct mail survey on the environment showed that 80 percent of those who responded, and thus allegedly the vast majority of the state's residents, support increased state spending for the environmentally safe disposal of solid waste. But we should expect that most of the people who respond to an environmental survey are in favor of spending money to protect the environment.

Which of the following best expresses the author's point?


The survey was mailed only to those citizens who are environmentalists.
Most citizens are poor judges of how the state's revenues should be spent.
The survey failed because it neglected to ask citizens where the money for the increased spending should come from.
Those who responded to the survey are not truly representative of the state's residents.
The state does not need to spend more money to dispose of solid waste.

The last statement of the argument says that,

"But we should expect that most of the people who respond to an environmental survey are in favor of spending money to protect the environment. "

i.e people responding to survey support spending money. But this does not prove that all residents of the state support spending money.
