### HideShow timer Statistics

All people residing in the country of Gradara approve of legislation requiring that certain hazardous waste be disposed of by being burned in modern high-temperature incinerators. However, waste disposal companies planning to build such incinerators encounter fierce resistance to their applications for building permits from the residents of every Gradaran community that those companies propose as an incinerator site.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps to explain the residents' simultaneously holding both of the positions ascribe them?

(A) High-temperature incineration minimizes the overall risk to the human population of the country from the wastes being disposed of, but it concentrates the remaining risk in a small number of incineration sites.

(B) High-temperature incineration is more expensive than any of the available alternatives would be and the higher costs would be recovered through higher product prices.

(C) High-temperature incineration will be carried out by private companies rather than by a government agency so that the government will not be required to police itself.

(D) The toxin fumes generated within a high-temperature incinerator can be further treated so that all toxic residues from a properly operating incinerator are solids.

(E) The substantial cost of high-temperature incineration can be partially offset by revenue from sales of electric energy generated as a by-product of incineration.

Hi..
The Q is asking specifically to the stand of residents. So the answer has to be something related to the residents.
So when these residents are asked for incinerator in general, they agree but when they are asked for permission of building one at their area, they object as it would severely effect their health.
So A is correct.

B tells us that price will be high and recovered from all of them, then either they disagree on both occasions as it will effect them even if it is built anywhere or they would agree on both occasions

Hope it helps

Hi chetan2u,

I don't quite understand how concentrating remaining risk at small number of sites will affect their health. Please explain

Thanks

the objection is from the community where it is proposed to build..
If it is at only small concentrated areas, why do those where it is proposed to build object..

Because if it is built anywhere else it will not effect them as they will be far off so every community wants that it is built but at a site away from them and NOT at their location as they will be in that CONCENTRATED zone.
