Birds that gather at the private airway of a huge corporation pose a huge problem for executives who use the corporate jets. These birds are known to fly into the jet propellers and, as a consequence cause the jets to crash. To solve the problem, the corporation plans to import a large number of herding dogs to keep the birds away from the jets.

Which of the following, if a realistic possibility, would cast the most serious doubt on the prospects for success of the corporation's plan?
A) The dogs will need to be regularly taken away for vaccinations and quarantine.
B) The dogs have been trained to herd cattle and will need to be retrained to herd birds.
C) The dogs will chase away other small animals that live around the airway, rousing criticism from nature activists.
D) Herding dogs tend to form an uncontrollable pack in large numbers.
E) Some of the birds will move to the neighboring airway in order to avoid being herded by the dogs.

Answer should be A, our bone of contention is 'to keep birds away if dogs will be regularly away plan may not be successful'.. I n D however it is not related to the plan to keep birds away it is out of scope

D, If there's a large no. of dogs on the runway then still the execs will face problems in taking off and landing.

In option A, regularly can also mean annually or bi-annually. Also it does not mention that all dogs need to be taken at a time for vaccination.
Whereas option D, states that large number of dogs form uncontrollable pack. If dogs are uncontrollable the plan will not serve the purpose of keeping away the bird. If we negate this statement the argument strengthens and hence it is the correct answer.
