Finance Secretary of MelaniA. Melania's Beef Importation Board, the quality control agency for imported Beef rejects about 3 % of the Beef that it inspects. As the maintenance costs of the agency far outweigh the health benefits of rejecting 3% beef and associated savings, the agency is drain on the state's exchequer.

Which of the following questions would be most useful in evaluating the lawmaker's argument?

A. Is there any variety of Beef imported into Melania, that is also produced in Melania?
B. Has the Beef Importation Board, over the last several years, reduced its operating costs by eliminating inefficiencies within the agency itself?
C. Does the possibility of having merchandise rejected by the Beef Importation Board deter many Beef exporters from shipping substandard Beef to Melania?
D. Are there any exporters of Beef to Melania whose merchandise is never rejected by the Beef Importation Board?
E. How is the Beef rejected by the Beef Importation Board disposed of?

If we say yes - we know that the audit is required to keep them exporters from shipping bad beef
If we say no - Audit is not required.

Hence C

If rejection by the Melania's Beef Importation Board is a deterrent to the exporters of beef to Melania then the agency should be there .
If the agency is disbanded then the the quality of beef will go down as the exporters will no longer have a deterrent to export low quality beef.
Hence the answer is C
