City leader: If our city adopts the new tourism plan, the amount of money that tourists spend here annually will increase by at least \$2 billion, creating as many jobs as a new automobile manufacturing plant would. It would be reasonable for the city to spend the amount of money necessary to convince an automobile manufacturer to build a plant here, but adopting the tourism plan would cost less
.
The city leader's statements, if true, provide the most support for which one of the following?

Premise: If city ups it tourism game, it will not require to convince an automobile plant & still give as much revenue. Now lets go through the answer choices & eliminate choices that are not a direct inference via POE:

(A) The city should implement the least expensive job creation measures available. - not really. this is too strong and the leader does not explicitly mention that they need to implement the least expensive measure

(B) In general, it is reasonable for the city to spend money to try to convince manufacturing companies to build plants in the city. - out of scope.

(C) The city cannot afford both to spend money to convince an automobile manufacturer to build a plant in the city and to adopt the new tourism plan. - a very very tempting choice. But again, the money has never been an issue in this city as per the stem. So we will have to keep it aside for now

(D) It would be reasonable for the city to adopt the new tourism plan. - Exactly what the leader is trying to support. Let me quote the leader here "It would be reasonable for the city to spend the amount of money necessary to convince an automobile manufacturer to build a plant here, but adopting the tourism plan would cost less"

(E) The only way the city can create jobs is by increasing tourism - too strong. Honestly, I did not even read this option since I was convinced with D.

A - The claim to adopt the least expensive job creation measures is too bold. The city leader only speaks about two prospects of job creation - tourism and auto manufacturing, so we can't definitely assume that either of the two are the least expensive.

D - This is almost exactly what the leader is claiming. Given the two possible avenues for job creation, the tourism plan would be a cheaper option and hence the most reasonable in this case.

Hope it helps!
