In response to requests made by the dairy industry the government is considering whether to approve the synthetic hormone BST for use in dairy cows. BST increases milk production but also leads to recurring udder inflammation decreased fertility, and symptoms of stress in cows who receive the hormone. All of these problems can be kept under control with constant veterinary care but such levels of veterinary help would cost big farms far less per cow than they would small farms.

If the statements above are true which one of the following clams is most strongly supported by them?

(A) The government is unlikely to approve the synthetic hormone BST for use in cows.
(B) The proportion of cows that suffer from udder inflammation decreased fertility, and symptoms of stress are currently greater on big dairy farms than on small ones.
(C) At the present time, milk from cows raised on small farms is safer to drink than milk from cows raised on big farms.
(D) The milk from cows who receive BST will not be safe for people to drink.
(E) Owners of big farms stand to gain more from government approval of BST than do owners of small farms.

IMO E

(A) The government is unlikely to approve the synthetic hormone BST for use in cows---> govt approval is not dependent on health of cows
(B) The proportion of cows that suffer from udder inflammation decreased fertility, and symptoms of stress are currently greater on big dairy farms than on small ones.---Passage mentions only the overall cost, it does not mean large farm owners have greater cost per cow than small owners

(C) At the present time, milk from cows raised on small farms is safer to drink than milk from cows raised on big farms.--No metion of quality is given
(D) The milk from cows who receive BST will not be safe for people to drink.---No mention of quality
(E) Owners of big farms stand to gain more from government approval of BST than do owners of small farms. --> Owners of big farm gain more than small farm per cow, bcz it means that milk will be increased and hence more money but with less medical care cost per cow,; whereas small farm milk will increase with high medical care cost, therefore large farm will gain more than small farm

IMO the answer should be E. Owners of big farms would benefit more because they'll have enough capital to invest in veterinary care for cows, and they'll reap more reward because big farms have more cows and the cost will be reduced per cow compared to that of small farms.
