Tigers - inference [#permalink]  05 Aug 2004, 11:41
The # of wild tigers living in India dropped from an estimated 40000 @ the turn of the century to 2000 in 1970. Althrough determined conservation efforts have halted the precipitous decline, the survival of the wild tiger in india is uncertain even now. Still, it is beyond doubt that if the tiger is to survive in the wild at all, its best chance is in india.

the satements above, if true, support whcih of the following assertions.

A. there are more than 2000 wild tugers surving in india

B. there are fewer than 2000 wild tigers living in the wild outside of india

c. if tigers fail to survie in the wild in idia, the species will become extinct.

d. it is impossible for a tiger raised in captivity ever to successfully adapt to life in the wild

e. the survival of the wild tiger in countries other than india is also endangered.

please explain answer

1 1/2 min. E for me
A) We don't know; tiger population could have declined since 1970
B) Nothing is said about the world tiger population
C) the specie will not necessarily become extinct if tigers do survive say in China.
D) too bold a statement
E) Last statement gives this away

Your comment is right on. The process of elimination is critical in CR because sometimes you can't predict what the right answer will look like.
