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.

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 cityâ€™s cultural climate and thus makes the city an attractive place for business to locate.
" to substantiate why it would be false economy.
