Environmental scientist: “In recent years, there has been a push to ‘go paperless,’ encouraging the use of electronic document delivery for everything from utility bills to books. This practice is portrayed as helping to save trees and reduce deforestation. However, environmentally responsible paper companies practice sustainable forestry methods and replace trees they harvest for paper milling. Therefore, using paper can actually help preserve the world’s forests.”

Which of the following questions, if answered, would be most helpful in evaluating the validity of the environmental scientist’s claim?

a) Are electronic copies of bills delivered sooner than paper copies?
b) Would the forests that environmentally responsible paper companies harvest and replant otherwise be cleared for other developmen
c) Does the energy usage required to transmit and view electronic documents outweigh the carbon footprint of transporting paper documents?
d) Do the paper companies replant the same species of trees that they harvest?
e) Does electronic document delivery preserve more trees than those planted by environmentally responsible paper companies?

A is out of question. E is no doubt relevant. But B is better. So it has to be B.

The answer seems to be E. The answer to this question would help us to evaluate whether electronic document delivery preserve more trees, then using paper from environmentally responsible paper companies will not help.

E.

If the answer is 'yes' - Then it would not help to preserve forests.
If the answer is 'no' - Then it not help to preserve forests.

Statement is relevant in both cases, therefore, E.
