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.

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
B. considers the effects of hunting on tigers without also considering the effects of hunting on other endangered animal species
C. fails to take into account how often tiger hunters are unsuccessful in their attempts to kill tigers
D. neglects to consider the results of governmental attempts in the past to limit tiger hunting
E. takes the removal of an impediment to the tigers’ survival as a guarantee of their survival

E is best.

Criticism can be 'banning tiger hunting alone WILL not ensure the survival of tigers. There may be other things that need to be addressed as well'

E is the answer. It is the only answer that cannot be true in all instances..therefore weakening the stimulus.

E is the best choice. It assumes that as long as there's no tiger hunting, the population of the tigers will benefit. This ignores other human activities that cause the tigers to be extinct, for example, deforestation which destroys the natural habitat of the tigers.

A. assumes without sufficient warrant that a ban on tiger hunting could be successfully enforced
-“if these countries can successfully enforce this legislation”-clearly says that Author has some doubts over the implementation. So Author is not assume this
-incorrect

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

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

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

E. takes the removal of an impediment to the tigers survival as a guarantee of their survival
- “Unless tiger hunting decreases, tigers will soon be extinct in the wild”- clearly the author assumes that only hunting will result in tiger extension. It is possible that even if the ban is in place, the tigers could become extinct by some disease or by a natural calamity.
Hence this is the correct Answer.

Expert's post
E is best. The author believes that the tiger's survival is gauranteed once these countries band together. In other words, the only thing preventing the tiger's survival is the absence of this united front from the governments in question. Once the government carries out its promise, then tigers will escape extinction:

Government action = tigers live
No government action = all tigers die

As you can see, the author's argument is way too simplistic.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your help. I realize now that all I need to answer the question is look for the assumption. I was looking for thing that was "vulnarable to criticism" in stead.

Thanks Jade3, + 1 from me.

Straight E. Not that tough to answer this one, considering that 3 out of 5 choices are out of scope. The only contenders are A and E. E is clearly the winner.
