Dont have OA.

In France, the nuclear-generated electricity poten-
tial—the approximate peak output ability of France’s
nuclear power plant network—is twice what it was
fifteen years ago. Yet during this period no new
nuclear power plants were built in France; in fact, five
plants were decommissioned, due to various spend-
ing and safety concerns.

Which one of the following, if true, best explains the
discrepancy described above?

Over the last fifteen years, the demand for
electricity in France has outstripped the
supply available from domestic sources.

The current rate of increase in domestic
demand for electricity in France is not as
great as it was fifteen years ago.

The planned expansion of the nuclear power
plant network in France has been held up
due to increased concerns over the safety of
such facilities.

The price of domestically generated electricity
in France has declined significantly over the
last fifteen years.

The average French power plant has the
potential to generate more electricity than it
did earlier, due to advances in nuclear power-
generation technology over the last fifteen
years.
