18. If the artificial is not better than the natural, to what end are all the arts of life? To dig, to plow, to build, to wear clothesâ€”all are direct violations of the injunction to follow nature.
If the authorâ€™s argument were challenged on the grounds that the construction of buildings has adverse effects on the natural environment, which of the following replies might the author use to respond to the challenge logically?
(A) There are human activities, such as making music, that are environmentally harmless.
(B) Harming the environment is not an end, of purpose, of the arts of life. (C) The construction could involve the use of natural, not artificial, materials.
(D) Constructing buildings is not an â€œart of life.â€
argument depends on a premise that construction has bad effect on natural envn. In "E" author accepts that there is an adverse effect on nature, but it is for the good of people. Thus, it is acceptable.
