In a recent press conference, the government promised the citizens of Town Y that the new national highway will not pass through existing archaeological heritage sites neighboring Town Y, including Site Z. However, the new highway will pass within a mile of Site Z, which is situated at the center of an area rich in archaeological sites yet to be completely discovered.

Which of the following inferences is best supported by the statements made above?

A) The government has broken its promise to the citizens of Town Y.
B) The citizens of Town Y are worried that the noise the new highway will generate might discourage tourists from visiting Site Z.
C) Unless the national highway plan is changed, undiscovered archaeological sites will possibly be damaged during the highway's construction.
D) Now that the government has shown its commitment to preserving archaeological heritage sites, there is no longer a threat to Site Z or to whatever undiscovered archaeological sites there are in its vicinity.
E) It is not that important if the area around Site Z is damaged by the highway since interest in archaeology is decreasing and the site would not receive many visitors anyway.

Which of the following inferences is best supported by the statements made above?

A) The government has broken its promise to the citizens of Town Y.
(This is extreme conclusion. OFS)
B) The citizens of Town Y are worried that the noise the new highway will generate might discourage tourists from visiting Site Z.
(Who are worried and for what reason cannot be inferred from the argument.)
C) Unless the national highway plan is changed, undiscovered archaeological sites will possibly be damaged during the highway's construction.
(This cannot be inferred if not for the word possibly and therefore is the supported by the argument.)
D) Now that the government has shown its commitment to preserving archaeological heritage sites, there is no longer a threat to Site
Z or to whatever undiscovered archaeological sites there are in its vicinity.
(This is new info and extreme as it gives assurance regarding threat to undiscovered sites. This even negates the presence of contrast indicator However)
E) It is not that important if the area around Site Z is damaged by the highway since interest in archaeology is decreasing and the site would not receive many visitors anyway.
(We are aware of this new info and this cannot be inferred.)

Answer should be C

A- not broken the promise, since the high way wont be passing through y or z
B- this is about preserving archaeological sites, not about tourists turning their backs to noise pollution
C- correct , because the high way is being constructed in near vicinity of site Z, citizens feel that the site may be damaged.
D- govt has not shown any commitment in preserving the sites, it has just promised that the high way wont go through the resp sites
E- out of scope. we are not discussing the interests of people- whether they are interested in archaeological sites.

such inference question is hard, any good strategy to find the correct answer immediately? I have read Kaplan Gmat books, but I am still inexperienced with this kind of question

Hey Chesstitans,

Which choices were you exactly confused between/among and why? I will be able to narrow down the problem for you once I see the point of confusion. :)

Cheers!
