D) neither business nor government are aware of many occupational health and safety hazards

C for me

We have to refute the fact that federal and state occupational health and safety regulations limit productivity
C does this.
most of the other choices are out of scope

"C" looks like an obvious answer.

All the other choices seem to strengthen the conclusion. Wonder what the OA is?

C for me too.
E1 â€“ Business considers safety with resource limits
vs
E2- government safety limits productivity and competitiveness

option C -"governmental health and safety regulations have reduced costly accidents that previously reduced worker productivity" refutes the stated opinion on E2.
