### HideShow timer Statistics

For a trade embargo against a particular country to succeed, a high degree of both international accord and ability to prevent goods from entering or leaving that country must be sustained. A total blockade of Patriaâ€™s ports is necessary to an embargo, but such an action would be likely to cause international discord over the embargo.
The claims above, if true, most strongly support which of the following conclusions?
(A) The balance of opinion is likely to favor Patria in the event of a blockade.
(B) As long as international opinion is unanimously against Patria, a trade embargo is likely to succeed.
(C) A naval blockade of Patriaâ€™s ports would ensure that no goods enter or leave Patria.
(D) Any trade embargo against Patria would be likely to fail at some time.
(E) For a blockade of Patriaâ€™s ports to be successful, international opinion must be unanimous.

E goes way to far with "must." Be aware of extreme language on CRs.
Besides, the stimulus clearly states that a high degree of international accord is necessary. High degree does not equal unanimously.

I think it is D.

I choose D.

For embargo we need international accord and block ports.

If you block ports ---> not international accord -----> fail

I go with D. With D, you have a proper chronology of events.

Premise:
1) For a trade embargo against a particular country to succeed, a high degree of both international accord and ability to prevent goods from entering or leaving that country must be sustained.

2)A total blockade of Patriaâ€™s ports is necessary to an embargo, but such an action would be likely to cause international discord over the embargo.

Conclusion:
3) (Therefore) Any trade embargo against Patria would be likely to fail at some time.

my debut post on the forum:

Its (E) For me.

Selectors of D presuppose that international unanimity may not be reached.
