Evan: I am a vegetarian because I believe it is immoral to inflict pain on animals to obtain food. Some vegetarians who share this moral reason nonetheless consume some seafood, on the grounds that it is not known whether certain sea creatures can experience pleasure or pain. But if it is truly wrong to inflict needless suffering, we should extend the benefit of the doubt to sea animals and refrain from eating seafood.

Which one of the following most closely conforms to the principle illustrated by Evan’s criticism of vegetarians who eat seafood?

(A) I do not know if I have repaid Farah the money she lent me for a movie ticket. She says that she does not remember whether or not I repaid her. In order to be sure that I have repaid her, I will give her the money now.

(B) It is uncertain whether all owners of the defective vehicles know that their vehicles are being recalled by the manufacturer. Thus, we should expect that some vehicles that have been recalled have not been returned.

(C) I am opposed to using incentives such as reduced taxes to attract businesses to our region. These incentives would attract businesses interested only in short-term profits. Such businesses would make our region’s economy less stable, because they have no long-term commitment to the community.

(D) Updating our computer security system could lead to new contracts. The present system has no problems, but we could benefit from emphasizing a state-of-the-art system in new proposals. If we do not get new customers, the new system could be financed through higher fees for current customers.

(E) Isabel Allende lived through the tragic events of her country’s recent history; no doubt her novels have been inspired by her memories of those events. Yet Allende’s characters are hopeful and full of joy, indicating that Allende’s own view of life has not been negatively marked by her experiences.

Pre-thinking

The author suggests that vegetarians should not eat fish since there might be the possibility that fish experiences pain and vegetarians refrain from eating animals food because of the pain inflicted to such animals.

More simplistically vegetarians are led by a belief and should not take any chance to harm animals by eating animal food.

Option A quite captures this scenario since person A wants to repay Person B (=vegetarians do not want to hurt animals) and when in doubt Person A repays Person B (=when vegetarians are in doubt whether the fish suffers or not they should not eat it)
