Environmentalist: Pure bio-diesel is much more economical than impure bio-diesel, which is mixed with petroleum because pure bio-diesel is entirely petroleum-free, and the price of oil is predicted to rise due to the worldwide dwindling of oil reserves.

Chemist: I strongly disagree. Pure bio-diesel is an economical disaster compared to impure bio-diesel because due to its vegetable origin, bio-diesel is susceptible to mold.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the chemist's objection to the environmentalist's claim?

A)Even before the rise in the price of oil, petroleum is more expensive than the vegetables used to manufacture bio-diesel
B)Due to political factors, the government has decided to withdraw its subsidies of pure bio-diesel
C)Environmentalists are trying to limit petroleum consumption in order to reduce toxic emissions into the earth's atmosphere
D)Impure bio-diesel has more chances of creating problems in car engines, a fact which raises the costs associated with it
E)Even the slightest concentration of petroleum is toxic enough to kill mold



I went for B and could not relate how E does the work.

Thanks.

E seems best: Even the slightest concentration of petroleum is toxic enough to kill mold

the Environmentalist is calming that Pure bio-diesel is much more economical than impure bio-diesel. the reason he is citing is the presence of petrol in "impure bio-diesel"

the Chemist is rejecting the idea of the environmentalist and claims that Pure bio-diesel is an economical disaster compared to impure bio-diesel because due to its vegetable origin, bio-diesel is susceptible to mold

now to support the object of chemist we need to show that impure bio-diesel is better than pure bio diesel .while doing so we need to keep close to argument of chemist .E does that job !!
