I was down to C & E and chose E. Negation rule does not seem to work. The reason why I left out C is it makes a comparison of activities to nature directly rather than injunction to follow nature. I also tried to arrive at an answer using the logical gap but got closer to E.

What is the conclusion?

D,P etc are all direct violations of injunction to follow nature

(or)

Artificial is better than natural

I guess its the latter
