(A) Property owners are sometimes allowed exemptions from restrictive zoning laws.
(B) It is in the best interest of property owners to maintain current laws in order to prevent an increase in their property taxes.
(C) The city council places less importance on property rights than do property owners.
(D) An individual’s property rights may be infringed upon by other people altering their own property.
(E) Zoning laws ensure that property rights are not overly extensive.

Many thanks.

I guess that some people wonder whether you can share your thoughts and elaborate a bit on this one.

Thanks!

Individual Property rights are to be preserved-According to-City Council.
Property owners can only cut grass or weedeing,
No Remodelling
Remodeling done by others may infringe others land, therefore only grass cutting.


(A) Property owners are sometimes allowed exemptions from restrictive zoning laws.
(B) It is in the best interest of property owners to maintain current laws in order to prevent an increase in their property taxes.
(C) The city council places less importance on property rights than do property owners.

Nicely D.

The situation is resolved by explaing a clause of individual property rights

" An individual’s property rights may be infringed upon by other people altering their own property."


Thus activities such as remodeling infringe the neighbours property right.

Hi, noboru!

I think that the argument presents an "apparent" contradiction between individual property rights and restrictions to property owners.

Therefore, the only way to solve the problem is showing that this contradiction isn't real.

IMH, it is exactly what answer D does, telling that those restrictions are helpful to prevent individual property rights.
