Whats the OE for this? I got this one right but want to check if my reasoning was the same as the OE...

There are quite a few good other answers here on the board... would be interesting to read OE.

B. You got it? The data given may or may not be respresentative. i.e the decrease in the extinction between 1950 and 2000 is because of what reason? This is what you want to evaluate.


Could you please restate your reasoning?


Argument: Zoologist warns of increased extinction. But past data says that extinction is decreasing.

Question asked: B. Has any special effort been made to save North American insect species?

Answer given:
YES or NO

Evaluation of argument: If answer is YES then we can say that the zoologists are right and the drop in extinction is due to these efforts.
If the answer is NO then we can say that zoologists are wrong and extinction will not increase because past trends are not like that.

So choice B's answer empowers you to evaluate the argument. You can not evaluate the argument by answering any of other choices.

Hope this helps.

And the reason it is not D as some of u believed is that, in D he jus speaks about small category of animals that is mammals, instead of considering the whole group.
