Conclusion: This method of protection cannot be implemented in ocean habitats that change position in three dimensions.

What can make strengthen that method of protection can not be implemented?

A: ok so in future it can be implemented, right? Doesn’t strengthen the conclusion
B: ok so if they work hard, it can be developed. Hence doesn’t strengthen the conclusion
C: if they don’t habitat there, then this method of protection is not valid again. It directly strengthens the conclusion.
D: Irrelevant: it doesn’t talk about method
E: Ok , so it directly weakens the conclusion.

Only C can make sense. Hence C is the correct answer.

A) A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles.

Since, method of protection cannot be implemented in ocean habitats that change position in three dimensions. Coming up with a method supports the statement above. Keep

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat.

Irrelevant. Eliminate

(C) In a matter of a few years, loggerhead an leatherback turtles will no longer inhabit the oceans.

This is the problem which needs to be solved. Answer choice goes against the statement above.Eliminate

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved.

We are not concerned with anyone else but loggerhead and leatherback turtlesEliminate

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used.

Irrelevant. ELiminate

Answer option A looks good and should be correct imo.

I think it doesnt mean NOT EXIST/DIE OUT. They may just not inhabit there.

Every year a large percentage of the population of loggerhead and leat [#permalink]
Hi,

My analysis is as follows:
Bunuel wrote:
Every year a large percentage of the population of loggerhead and leatherback turtles are killed by deep-sea fishing. To protect land animals, habitats of endangered species are fenced off and monitored. This method of protection cannot be implemented in ocean habitats that change position in three dimensions.

If the statements above are correct, they most strongly support which of the following?

(A) A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles. CORRECT. The lines in the question above speak about two things, (a) what the problem is (b) what solution is used on land and why it cannot be implemented at sea. Thus, it makes sense that they support this answer choice, which talks about developing and implementing a method of protection for turtles.

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat. Out of scope. The passage does not talk about the quantum of effort put in by conservationists.

(C) In a matter of a few years, loggerhead an leatherback turtles will no longer inhabit the oceans. Just rephrases the first couple of lines from the passage.

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved. Out of scope - the passage does not mention about other sea animals.

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used. Out of scope - no specific method is suggested for a three-dimensional ocean habitat.

Suggestions are welcome. Thank you.­

(A) A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles.

This Option should be rephrased to present it as one of the likely working solution rather than the only solution; There can be many other solution to the problem being discussed.
Not a very great construction, but this could be the answer.

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat.
Out of scope

(C) In a matter of a few years, loggerhead an leatherback turtles will no longer inhabit the oceans.
We can't predict anything based on the given information

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved.
Can't draw this inference based on the given information

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used.
Can't draw this inference based on the given information

Every year a large percentage of the population of loggerhead and leatherback turtles are killed by deep-sea fishing. To protect land animals, habitats of endangered species are fenced off and monitored. This method of protection cannot be implemented in ocean habitats that change position in three dimensions.

A inference based question in which we cannot bring outside information.

(A) A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles. - Correct. Surely this can be inferred from the final line of the passage.

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat. - Incorrect. Not mentioned anywhere in the passage.

(C) In a matter of a few years, loggerhead an leatherback turtles will no longer inhabit the oceans. - Too extreme/ outside opinion. Incorrect

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved. - Incorrect. Other sea animals are not mentioned in the passage.

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used. - Incorrect. No such infrared tagging system is discussed in the passage. Outside information

IMO A

A is a clear winner.

Option C states an extreme statement.
Moreover, what if both the loggerhead an leatherback turtles reproduce at a faster rate than the killing rate.
Option C is not airtight.

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat.- Out of scope

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved.- Not concerned by others animals

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used.

Confused between "A" and "E".... i think as we are talking about turtles so "A".

Also, if there is already a system than why we are not using that...so "E"can be eliminated. No sure but.­

Type: Inference Question

(A) A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles. Could be correct, Let's check others

(B) Conservationists are not working hard enough to develop a protection method for every kind of habitat.Extreme, We don't know whether conservationists are working/not

(C) In a matter of a few years, loggerhead an leatherback turtles will no longer inhabit the oceans. No data to prove this, OFS

(D) Other sea animals are also harmed by the fishing industry, and will also become endangered unless the problem is solved. Although, It seems tempting we don't have data abt other animals, OFS

(E) To control and monitor a three-dimensional ocean habitat, an infrared tagging system should be used. OFS

Hence A

This is a very poor question. The last sentence of the stem has an obvious modifier error, and says something different from what it means, and the first sentence has a subject-verb agreement error, so it might be useful as SC practice. But it's fundamentally flawed as a CR question. One fundamental problem: the stem never tells us turtles are endangered. We learn many turtles die from fishing, but that doesn't mean they're endangered -- maybe they reproduce quickly. And even if we assume the specific turtles in the passage are the "endangered turtles" in answer A, answer A is clearly not a valid inference, because it says "A method for the protection of moving habitats would have to be developed and implemented to solve the problem of endangered turtles." Why are these turtles endangered, from the passage? Because of deep sea fishing. So we don't have to develop a monitoring system to protect them. We can just stop deep sea fishing.

None of the answers can be inferred from the passage.
