If tourists continue to visit Bridges National Park at the current rate, the fragile desert environment that the park seeks to protect will be irreparably harmed. The park's Director has put forth a proposal to charge visitors to the park a fee based on the number of hours spent in the park. This fee will induce tourists to limit their time in the park and thus protect the fragile desert environment.

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

    A. Tourists will limit the amount of time they spend in the park by hiking only the shorter trails in the park.
    B. Most tourists will easily be able to pay the fee even if they do not reduce the number of hours that they spend in the park.
    C. The fee will not induce tourists to enter the park early in the morning before the fee collection station has opened and leave only after the fee collection stations has closed for the night.
    D. Protecting the fragile desert environment is an important issue for most visitors to the park.
    E. Tourists who do not wish to pay the fee can visit the nearby Chasmland National Park.

A. Tourists will limit the amount of time they spend in the park by hiking only the shorter trails in the park. Possible answer. But it does not take into consideration that the tourists might increase the time by resting or detailed sightseeing on these short trails.

B. Most tourists will easily be able to pay the fee even if they do not reduce the number of hours that they spend in the park. Assumption out of scope.

C. The fee will not induce tourists to enter the park early in the morning before the fee collection station has opened and leave only after the fee collection stations has closed for the night. Highly probable since the tourists can avoid paying the fee if they do so, thereby defeating the purpose of the new arrangement.

D. Protecting the fragile desert environment is an important issue for most visitors to the park. Assumption is beyond scope.

E. Tourists who do not wish to pay the fee can visit the nearby Chasmland National Park. Out of scope.

I think the answer should be C .

Here then conclusion says that the fee will cause tourists to limit time spent in the park . So Ira assuming that they have not found any alternative ways to reduce/ skip the the fee altogether
