2) Administrators at a local college recently passed a mandatory recycling rule for all faculty and staff. Campus offices will be provided with bins for sorting paper, plastic, and glass, and employees will be subject to reprimand if recyclables are routinely found in their trash bins. The college president said in a statement that he hopes not only to make the campus more environmentally friendly, but also to set a good example for students, so that they will develop a habit of recycling even when they are not on campus.

Which of the following is most like the college presidentâ€™s stated reasons for the recycling rule in logical structure?

(A) Parents punish their children when they fail to brush their teeth because they want the children to begin habits that will lead to healthy teeth and gums.
(B) Health departments enforce rules that restaurants must post signs in restrooms reminding employees they are required to wash their hands before returning to work, protecting the public health both by assuring that employees practice good hygiene and by encouraging members of the public to do the same.
(C) Library policies state a penalty for returning borrowed books past their due date in order to assure that as many people as possible have access to the books they wish to read.
(D) City sanitation crews post notices near sewers that drain rainwater to the local river announcing a penalty for dumping waste or motor oil.
(E) A state legislature passes a law requiring local factories to reduce the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere or the local watershed area in order to prevent damage to wildlife habitats.

I think it's B.

The pattern is X enforces something on Y in the hope that Z too benefit from it.

B according to me...................

The rule imposed by the president not only helps the staff in purging the enviroment, but is also passed on inadvertantly to the students.

The ruled enforced by the resturaunt,not only urges the employees to keep clean and mantain hygiene, but also helps the employees set an example to the general public to follow the same.

B !

Both B and the original argument want to achive something beyond their explicit need.
