2. Zoo director: The city is in a financial crisis and must reduce its spending. Nevertheless, at least one reduction measure in next year’s budget, cutting City Zoos funding in half, is false economy. The zoo’s current budget equals less than 1 percent of the city’s deficit, so withdrawing support from the zoo does little to help the city’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 city’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 director’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 zoo’s budget in half.
(C) City Zoo’s budget is only a very small portion of the city’s entire budget.
(D) The zoo will be forced to close if its budget is cut.
(E) The city’s educational and cultural climate will be irreparably damaged if the zoo is forced to close.

hmm, I would go with B. The zoo directer seems to say "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 city’s cultural climate and thus makes the city an attractive place for business to locate.
" to substantiate why it would be false economy.
