Unless tiger hunting decreases,tigers will soon be extinct in the wild. The countries in which the tiger's habitats are located are currently debating joint legislation that would ban tiger hunting. thus if these countries can successfully enforce the legislation, the survival of tigers in the wild can be ensured.
The reasoning in the argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that the argument
1) assumes without sufficient warrant that a ban on tiger hunting could be successfully enforced.
2)considers the effect of hunting on tigers without also considering the effects of hunting on other edangered animal species.
3)fails to take into account how often tiger hunters are successful in their attempts to kill tigers
4)neglects to consider the results of governmental attempts in the past to limit tiger hunting
5)takes the removal of an impediment to the tiger's survival as a guarantee of their survival.




Please explain the answer to this question in detail. Thanks in advance.

(A) Incorrect: Paragraph never assumes that the ban will be successfully enforced. It says "IF these countries can successfully enforce the legislation . . ."

(B) Incorrect: The paragraph is not intended to address the problem of other endangered animals. Its argument is that a successful ban on tiger hunting will allow for the survival of tigers. Other endangered animals has nothing to do with this.

(C) Incorrect: Not that strong of an argument against the author's reasoning. Even if tiger hunters aren't that successful, a successful ban on tiger hunting should help the survival of tigers.

(D) Incorrect: Past bans are outside the scope of the argument. We can't assume past bans have any impact on how successful a future ban will be

(E) Correct: The red-flag in the author's original reasoning is that if tiger hunting is banned, then tiger survival is ensured. This assumes that there is nothing else out there that is hurting tiger survival. There's no guarantee that some other factor isn't leading to the endangering of tigers

thus if these countries can successfully enforce the legislation, the survival of tigers in the wild can be ensured.

The reasoning in the argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that the argument

1) assumes without sufficient warrant that a ban on tiger hunting could be successfully enforced.--> irrelevant

2)considers the effect of hunting on tigers without also considering the effects of hunting on other edangered animal species.
--> other species OUT OF SCOPE

3)fails to take into account how often tiger hunters are successful in their attempts to kill tigers
-->IRRELEVANT

4)neglects to consider the results of governmental attempts in the past to limit tiger hunting
--> IRRELEVANT

5)takes the removal of an impediment to the tiger's survival as a guarantee of their survival.
--> CORRECT
