The population of desert tortoises in Targland’s Red Desert has declined, partly because they are captured for sale as pets and partly because people riding all-terrain vehicles have damaged their habitat. Targland plans to halt this population decline by blocking the current access routes into the desert and announcing new regulations to allow access only on foot. Targland’s officials predict that these measures will be adequate, since it is difficult to collect the tortoises without a vehicle.

Which of the following would it be most important to establish in order to evaluate the officials’ prediction?

A. Whether possessing the tortoises as pets remains legally permissible in Targland
B. Whether Targland is able to enforce the regulations with respect to all-terrain vehicle entry at points other than the current access routes
C. Whether the Red Desert tortoises are most active during the day or at night
D. Whether people who travel on foot in the Red Desert often encounter the tortoises
E. Whether the Targland authorities held public hearings before restricting entry by vehicle into the Red Desert

If there is access from other points than current access routes, then regulation will not meet its objectives.

I would go with B.

A. Whether possessing the tortoises as pets remains legally permissible in Targland

Off topic. Legalization of owning tortoises as pets has nothing to do with new enforcement.

B. Whether Targland is able to enforce the regulations with respect to all-terrain vehicle entry at points other than the current access routes

Definately the answer cus there is a possibility of people getting away with it by going through unenforced routes.


C. Whether the Red Desert tortoises are most active during the day or at night

Off Topic.

D. Whether people who travel on foot in the Red Desert often encounter the tortoises

This wouldn't be a concern cus it would be harder for pp on foot to catch a bunch of tortoises.

E. Whether the Targland authorities held public hearings before restricting entry by vehicle into the Red Desert

Possible answer but it's not mentioned or implied in the passage.
