Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

egmat : Request your help on this.

I want to understand why B is not a correct option. Let me state my method of reasoning here :

If we negate the statement B, it states that :
Domestic production of natural gas is rising slower than its domestic production of oil.

Now, since the all heating systems will be converted from oil to natural gas, the demand will increase for natural gas and demand for oil will decrease. If the production of natural gas doesn't keep up with the demand, Siduria would need to import more oil. The excess production of oil will not help as its demand will reduce.

So, this definitely destroys the conclusion.

Can you help me understand the flaw of this reasoning?

Hi there,

B. Domestic production of natural gas is rising faster than is domestic production of oil in Siduria. Irrelevant as is already stated in the form of the premise,
Siduria already produces more natural gas each year than it burns, and oil production in Sidurian oil fields is increasing at a steady pace.
