A recent report on an environmental improvement program was criticized for focusing solely on pragmatic solutions to the large number of significant problems that plague the program instead of seriously trying to produce a coherent vision for the future of the program. In response the report's authors granted that the critics had raised a valid point but explained that, to do anything at all, the program needed continued government funding, and that to get such funding the program first needed to regain a reputation for competence.

20. The basic position taken by the report's authors on the criticism leveled against the report is that
(A) addressing the critics' concern now would be premature
(B) the critics' motives are self-serving
(C) the notion of a coherent vision would be inappropriate to a program of the sort at issue (D) the authors of the report are more knowledgeable than its critics
(E) giving the report a single focus is less desirable than the critics claim

21. Which one of the following, if true, would best serve the critics of the report in their attempt to undermine the position taken by the report's authors?
(A) The government does not actually provide a full l00 percent of the program's funding.
(B) The program will continue to have numerous serious problems precisely because it lacks a coherent vision for its future.
(C) The program had a coherent vision at its inception, but that vision has proved impossible to sustain.
(D) The government has threatened to cut off funding for the program but has not acted yet on this threat.
(E) The program has acquired a worse reputation for incompetence than it deserves.
