The GMAT would be such a more pleasant test if this were really a 700-level question.

Answer is E.

Unless tiger hunting decreases, tigers will soon be extinct in the wild. The countries in which the tigers’ habitats are located are currently debating joint legislation that would ban tiger hunting. Thus, if these countries can successfully enforce this legislation, the survival of tigers in the wild will be ensured.

Notes
Tigers die from hunting.
Countries in which tigers live are thinking of passing a law that will ban hunting.
Conclusion: tigers will not be extinct

ASU:
Tiger hunters can't find another way around the law.

Tigers won't die from other means such as disease or loss of habitat.

The reasoning in the argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that the argument
A. assumes without sufficient warrant that a ban on tiger hunting could be successfully enforced

Wrong: no assumption that ban could be enforced. Even if the ban were enforced, tigers could die from other means.

B. considers the effects of hunting on tigers without also considering the effects of hunting on other endangered animal species

Wrong:
Out of scope, because hunting of other animals is irrelevant

C. fails to take into account how often tiger hunters are unsuccessful in their attempts to kill tigers

Wrong: success of hunters is irrelevant

D. neglects to consider the results of governmental attempts in the past to limit tiger hunting

Wrong:
Past efforts are irrelevant.

E. takes the removal of an impediment to the tiger's survival as a guarantee of their survival
Correct:
Tigers could die from other means. Hunting is just one of those means.

E would be the right choice.. as the premise stands on the assumption that Only hunting is the sole cause of extinction, which is rather one of the reasons.
