Burning leaves and domestic refuse on open grounds releases high levels of carbon monoxide and Co2, this is extremely deleterious to the environment. Therefore, legislation is needed to regulate the burning of leaves and other refuses on open grounds.

Which of the following, if true, provides the most support for the argument above?

A The amount of carbon monoxide released when leaves are burnt is much less than the amount contained in an equal volume of automobile exhaust.
B In towns where leaves and other refuse is burnt in open-grounds the concentration of smoke results in poor air quality.
C Smoke produced by burning rubber is significantly more toxic than smoke from burning leaves and other refuse.
D No significant beneficial effect on air quality would result if open-air fires were banned within the jurisdiction covered by the proposed legislation.
E Within the jurisdiction covered by the proposed legislation, most waste disposal is done in non-polluting indoor incinerators.

C Smoke produced by burning rubber is significantly more toxic than smoke from burning leaves and other refuse. - Same as A

D No significant beneficial effect on air quality would result if open-air fires were banned within the jurisdiction covered by the proposed legislation. - Opposite

We need to find a statement which can provide support that burning leaves and domestic refuse is bad.

Let's evaluate choices

A The amount of carbon monoxide released when leaves are burnt is much less than the amount contained in an equal volume of automobile exhaust. - The comparison made with with automobile exhaust is irrelevant to the argument

B In towns where leaves and other refuse is burnt in open-grounds the concentration of smoke results in poor air quality. - Correct- this suggests bad impact of doing (bad air quality)

C Smoke produced by burning rubber is significantly more toxic than smoke from burning leaves and other refuse. - Same as A.comparison with rubber-irrelevant

D No significant beneficial effect on air quality would result if open-air fires were banned within the jurisdiction covered by the proposed legislation. - it weaken instead of supporting

E Within the jurisdiction covered by the proposed legislation, most waste disposal is done in non-polluting indoor incinerators. - neither strengthen nor weaken


Best choice is B

Give kudos if it helps
