How does a building contractor most readily prove compliance with the building codes governing new construction? By using those established technologies that the authors of the codes had in mind when setting specifications. This, unfortunately, means that there will never be any significant technological innovation within the industry.


The argument above depends on the assumption that, in choosing the technologies to use in new construction, building contractors

(A) are always more concerned to avoid difficulties in proving compliance with the relevant codes than to be innovative
(B) are always concerned to exceed the official specifications by a wide margin in order to forestall challenges
(C) pay little or no attention to the total construction costs entailed by different technologies
(D) consult directly with the authors of the relevant codes in order to avoid using an unproven technology
(E) are able to foresee any changes the releVant codes may undergo before the completion of a new project


Kudos for the right OA and explanation
