10. In most accidents involving bicycle riders, they get seriously damaged. Therefore, bicycle riders face serious danger on roads with other traffic. Even though bicycle lanes are widely introduced and bicycle riders have to know and follow general traffic rules, it is highly unsafe to drive a bicycle. To avoid high risks of driving a bicycle on the road bicyclist should be prohibited from driving on the roads. Bicyclist oftentimes are in a position to cause harm to pedestrians, therefore for the reasons of pedestrian safety, bicycle riders should also not drive in pedestrian walks.

Which is the best and most feasible solution to the problem above that can help solve the problem with bicycle riders and the dangers they face and can cause to others?

a. Bicycle lanes should be rebuilt into special roads for bicyclists. These roads should be as separate from the general traffic as the pedestrian walks and should have special privileges and rights. The new bicycle roads should in no way get in contact with either pedestrian walks or roads for general traffic.

b. Bicycles should be prohibited and people who cannot afford other means of transportation should be allowed to take specially designed loans or otherwise subsidized by government for the purchase of a cheap motor vehicle.

c. Riding a bicycle on the general roads or otherwise within the city limits should be prohibited. Bicycle sport should be shifted to off-road and mountain biking only.

d. All pedestrians should ride bicycles, therefore share the same damage and privileges. Pedestrian walks should be redone for bicycle lanes.

e. The government should advertise bicycle sport as potentially damaging. This can influence the public's opinions and convince people not to want to drive bicycles.

Seems either A or B using POE.

A is the best solution but B is most feasible.

I will go with A.

A looks good.

B---->It talks about completely prohibiting bicycles, hence not feasible.
C---->No mention of bicycle sports and hence not valid reason.
D---->Ridiculous reasoning.
E---->Simple solution but not necessarily the feasible and effective one.

I beg to differ.

The question is to find the best and the feasible solution.

A does give the best solution but not the feasible one. Consider the cost of building entirely new road systems for bicyclists.

B offers the next best and feasible solution.
The goverment can provide loans or subsidies. The burden on the government won't be extraordinary in this case.

Thats my opinion,
But won't be suprised if the answer is A in GMAT land

I went with A in this case. I found C to be unfeasible in the sense that a blanket ban of bicycles in the city might cause a lot of inconvenience.

I was between C and E...

E seemed like not everyone who rides bicycles might be reached by such approach and C didn't require anything, which meant "feasible"

all other answers required one kind of spending or another so I didn't think they were correct

The correct answer is C. The question asks for the best and most feasible solution. In order to avoid dangers connected to driving a bicycle in town, it is best to prohibit it and shift it to other areas, in order not to completely rid bicycle lovers of the right for their passion.
a. The best solution but not feasible.
b. Not all people can drive motor vehicles, plus this option might be costly, too.
c. the correct answer (see explanation above)
d. Not all people can ride bicycles.
e. The result is not guaranteed (word 'can' plays an important part), even though this could be very feasible.
