### HideShow timer Statistics

If the county continues to collect residential trash at
current levels, landfills will soon be overflowing and
parkland will need to be used in order to create more
space. Charging each household a fee for each pound
of trash it puts out for collection will induce residents
to reduce the amount of trash they create; this charge
will therefore protect the remaining county parkland.

Which of the following is an assumption made in
drawing the conclusion above?
(A) Residents will reduce the amount of trash they
put out for collection by reducing the number
(B) The collection fee will not significantly affect
the purchasing power of most residents, even if
their households do not reduce the amount of
trash they put out.
(C) The collection fee will not induce residents to
dump their trash in the parklands illegally.
(D) The beauty of county parkland is an important
issue for most of the county’s residents.
(E) Landfills outside the county’s borders could be
used as dumping sites for the county’s trash.

current levels, landfills will soon be overflowing and
parkland will need to be used in order to create more
space. Charging each household a fee for each pound
of trash it puts out for collection will induce residents
to reduce the amount of trash they create; this charge
will therefore protect the remaining county parkland.

Which of the following is an assumption made in
drawing the conclusion above?

(A) Residents will reduce the amount of trash they
put out for collection by reducing the number
of products they buy. - This statment repeats what the author says in the original statement (i do not know a better way to explain).

(B) The collection fee will not significantly affect
the purchasing power of most residents, even if
their households do not reduce the amount of
trash they put out.

(C) The collection fee will not induce residents to
dump their trash in the parklands illegally. - Correct. The author assumes that inspite of charging them, the residents will still use the sma esystem and will not opt for illegal stuff in dumping the trash.

(D) The beauty of county parkland is an important
issue for most of the countyâ€™s residents. - The author does not talk about beuty, hence it is so called out-of.scope. - Eliminate.

(E) Landfills outside the countyâ€™s borders could be
used as dumping sites for the countyâ€™s trash. - Out of scope again, Eliminate
