At a recent meeting on environmental threats off the coast of the state of Maine, most participants favored uniform controls on the quality of food fed to salmon species in fish farms located along the coast of the state. Such controls were overwhelmingly supported without regard to whether or not specific environmental damage could be linked to a particular type of food being used. What must, of course, be shown, in order to mitigate the risk of excessively restrictive controls, is that ___ .

A) all agreed upon controls that are uniform in nature will be implemented without any delay

B) all fish foods that will be the subject of controls are known to actually cause environmental damage off the coast of Maine

C) the meeting participants favoring uniform controls are primarily from an industry that competes with the salmon farmers

D) all of the chemicals that are ingredients in some of the controlled substances are known to cause environmental damage

E) the environmental damage that has historically been caused by the dangerous fish foods is not reversible in the foreseeable future, if ever

Guess the option is B
In the previous line, it has been mentioned about the lack of evidence on food affecting the environment....

Question Type: Complete the passage

Premise: Uniform controls on foods fed to Salmons in fish farms, is favored, with any disregard whether the foods cause any real environmental damage or the extent of their damage.

Conclusion: The conclusion is trying to mitigate the risk of possibility of putting excessive controls on the foods & we need to provide a strengthener to this conclusion, which will justify why a food is under the list of controlled foods.

A) all agreed upon controls that are uniform in nature will be implemented without any delay - Irrelevant. Incorrect

B) all fish foods that will be the subject of controls are known to actually cause environmental damage off the coast of Maine - Correct, this will justify if a food is controlled due to its causing environmental damage & will not have a food which doesn't cause any environmental damage to come under the list.

C) the meeting participants favoring uniform controls are primarily from an industry that competes with the salmon farmers _ Irrelevant. Incorrect.

D) all of the chemicals that are ingredients in some of the controlled substances are known to cause environmental damage - "some" but we need to know for all, otherwise there can be excessive control, as foods that don't cause any environmental damage might be viewed otherwise. Incorrect

E) the environmental damage that has historically been caused by the dangerous fish foods is not reversible in the foreseeable future, if ever. - Incorrect, this does not mitigate the risk of accidentally including safer foods under the controlled list.

Thanks,
GyM
