### HideShow timer Statistics

Goronian lawmaker: Goronia's Cheese Importation Board, the agency responsible for inspecting all wholesale shipments of cheese entering Goronia from abroad and rejecting shipments that fail to meet specified standards, rejects about one percent of the cheese that it inspects. Since the health consequences and associated costs of not rejecting that one percent would be negligible, whereas the cost of maintaining the agency is not, the agency's cost clearly outweights the benefits it provides.

Knowing the answer to which of the following would be most usefel in evaluating the lawmaker's argument?

A. Are any of the types of cheeses that are imported into Goronia also produced in Goronia?

B. Has the Cheese 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 Cheese Importation Board deter many exporters from shipping substandard cheese to Goronia?

D. Are there any exporters of cheese to Goronia whose merchandise is never rejected by the Cheese Importation Board?

E. How is the cheese rejected by the Cheese Importation Board disposed of?

Is the best question to evaluate the argument.

this is a poorly written question. where did this come from?

second sentence rewritten:

Since the health consequences and associated costs of not rejecting that one percent would not be worth noting, whereas the cost of maintaining the agency is not, the agency's cost clearly outweights the benefits it provides to the people of Goronia.

i've found a key to studying is to locate the really crappy questions and trash them.

I think C is the answer.

Reads like an LSAT CR. Anyway OA should be (C). The board may serve primarily as a "deterrent" to keeping substandard cheeses out of the country. This is an evaluation question, so we can either weaken or strengthen the argument.

If C is true, the benefit of having the inspection agency is clearly more than 1 percent of the rejected cheese.
