Citizen of Mooresville: Mooresville’s current city council is having a ruinous effect on municipal finances. Since a majority of the incumbents are running for reelection, I am going to campaign against all these incumbents in the upcoming city council election. The only incumbent I will support and vote for is the one who represents my own neighborhood, because she has the experience necessary to ensure that our neighborhoods interests are served. If everyone in Mooresville would follow my example, we could substantially change the council’s membership.
Assuming that each citizen of Mooresville is allowed to vote only for a city council representative from his or her own neighborhood, for the council’s membership to be changed substantially, it must be true that
(A) at least some other voters in Mooresville do not make the same exception for their own incumbent in the upcoming election
(B) most of the eligible voters in Mooresville vote in the upcoming election
(C) few of the incumbents on the Mooresville city council have run for reelection in previous elections
(D) all of the seats on the Mooresville city council are filled by incumbents whose terms are expiring
(E) none of the challengers in the upcoming election for seats on Mooresville’s city council are better able to serve the interests of their neighborhoods than were the incumbents

D.

For the membership to change substantially, you will need many members, whose terms are expiring, to be replaced with the new ones.

I go for D.

Everyone votes for a member from their own neighbourhood will lead to a substantial change of council.

So for the change of council the assumption here is that most of the members will not be re-elected.

D explains this fact by stating that the current council members terms are expiring.

Really brutal,

I must spend nearly 30 mins read and reread the stem, combining with above explaination, finally I persuade me D is choice.

I think Lsat need a reference deeper than in Gmat. I can only refer that "all people in Mooresvilles will follow his example. Then All must vote for only imcumbent who can be representative of their neiborhood. and stop.

I never think more than what stem said. But it did not work for this bruttal
