In an effort to reduce the number of deer, and therefore decrease the number of automobile accidents caused by deer, the government lengthened the deer hunting season earlier this year. Surprisingly, the number of accidents caused by deer has increased substantially since the introduction of the longer hunting season.

All of the following, if true, help to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer EXCEPT:

A. The presence of humans in the woods causes the deer to move to new areas, which causes the deer to cross roads more frequently than normal.

B. In the area where the deer live, traffic has increased substantially precisely because of the lengthened hunting season.

C. Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.

D. Deer tend to bolt when hearing gunshots or other loud sounds and are more likely to run across a road without warning.

E. A new highway was recently built directly through the state's largest forest, which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population.

Effect (Increased accident) Mentioned in argument, can happen because of two reasons
Reason 1 : Increased deer population on road.
Reason 2 : Increased Human population on Jungle road.

(A) The presence of humans in the woods causes the deer to move to new areas,
which causes the deer to cross roads more frequently than normal.
Reason 1 - Hence wrong.

(B) In the area where the deer live, traffic has increased substantially precisely
because of the lengthened hunting season.
Reason 2 - Hence Wrong

(C) Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid
deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.
Neither reason 1 nor 2, It say how accident occurs not why it occurs. So not relevant.

(D) Deer tend to bolt when hearing gunshots or other loud sounds and are
more likely to run across a road without warning.
Reason 1 - Hence Wrong


(E) A new highway was recently built directly through the state's largest forest,
which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population.
Reason 2 - Hence Wrong


Option C is correct

Reduce Deet Population====>Lengthened Deer Hunting Season=====>Reduced automobile accidents caused by deer.

The plan did not workout - The number of accidents caused by deer has increased substantially.


All of the following, if true, help to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer EXCEPT:


(A) The presence of humans in the woods causes the deer to move to new areas, which causes the deer to cross roads more frequently than normal. - Helps to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer.

(B) In the area where the deer live, traffic has increased substantially precisely because of the lengthened hunting season. - Helps to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer.

(C) Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed. - Doesn't Help us to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer.

(D) Deer tend to bolt when hearing gunshots or other loud sounds and are more likely to run across a road without warning. - Helps to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer.

(E) A new highway was recently built directly through the state's largest forest, which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population. - Helps to explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer.

Hence IMHO (C) fits best here...

The option C is very tricky and attractive wrong answer. Here , the general process of accidents is described, that were true in earlier accidents and also, true in present situation of extended hunting period. If it was told that this process of accidents start to happen after the hunting period extended, it could fit. But, we can't say the extended hunting period causes such fashion of accidents. Even the other options(a,b,d,e) also might involve such style of accidents. So, C can't resolve the dilemma,rather highlights it!
On the other hand, the most unattractive option is E but which is correct. An unattractive fashion of an answer choice subconsciously drives us to cancel it. So, be careful! Having a highway where deers live most increases car accidents with deers. This cause alone can increase accidents, evenif the extended unting period can cause to decrease accidents.
In the resolve the discrepancy question, always try to find such answer choices that touches both premeses and more importantly, accually resolve in stead of hoghlighting the discrepancy. One sided answer choice is wrong, and so is if the answer choice tries to resolve from a similiar (but not same) situation.
