Gene splicing can give rise to new varieties of farm animals that have only a partially understood genetic makeup. In addition to introducing the genes for whichever trait is desired, the technique can introduce genes governing the production of toxins or carcinogens, and these latter undesirable traits might not be easily discoverable.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?

(A) All toxin production is genetically controlled.
(B) Gene splicing to produce new varieties of farm animals should be used cautiously.
(C) Gene splicing is not effective as a way of producing new varieties of farm animals.
(D) Most new varieties of farm animals produced by gene splicing will develop cancer.
(E) Gene splicing will advance to the point where unforeseen consequences are no longer a problem.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?

(A) All toxin production is genetically controlled.
can introduce genes.... It does not mean all

(B) Gene splicing to produce new varieties of farm animals should be used cautiously. - Correct

(C) Gene splicing is not effective as a way of producing new varieties of farm animals
can give rise to new varieties of farm animals..... It is effective but chances are it may not be safe

(D) Most new varieties of farm animals produced by gene splicing will develop cancer.
can introduce genes...... It does not mean all

(E) Gene splicing will advance to the point where unforeseen consequences are no longer a problem.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?

(A) All toxin production is genetically controlled.
the control of toxin produced is not mentioned in the argument and thus this point is out of scope.
(B) Gene splicing to produce new varieties of farm animals should be used cautiously.
This is the most appropriate choice of answer because the argument mentioned that the unmapped genetic makeup may lead to toxins produced..and some undisirable traits whuch may not be easily discoverable.
(C) Gene splicing is not effective as a way of producing new varieties of farm animals.
No such premise
(D) Most new varieties of farm animals produced by gene splicing will develop cancer.
No such inference
(E) Gene splicing will advance to the point where unforeseen consequences are no longer a problem.
Not supported in the argument. and alos not the main idea of the argument.
