2. Zoo director: The city is in a financial crisis and must reduce its spending. Nevertheless, at least one reduction measure in next yearâ€™s budget, cutting City Zoos funding in half, is false economy. The zooâ€™s current budget equals less than 1 percent of the cityâ€™s deficit, so withdrawing support from the zoo does little to help the cityâ€™s financial situation. Furthermore, the zoo, which must close if its budget is cut, attracts tourists and tax dollars to the city. Finally, the zoo adds immeasurably to the cityâ€™s cultural climate and thus makes the city an attractive place for business to locate.
Which one of the following is the main conclusion of the zoo directorâ€™s argument?
(A) Reducing spending is the only means the city has of responding to the current financial crisis.
(B) It would be false economy for the city to cut the zooâ€™s budget in half.
(C) City Zooâ€™s budget is only a very small portion of the cityâ€™s entire budget.
(D) The zoo will be forced to close if its budget is cut.
(E) The cityâ€™s educational and cultural climate will be irreparably damaged if the zoo is forced to close.
