### HideShow timer Statistics

In the years since the city of London imposed strict air-pollution regulations on local industry, the number of bird species seen in and around London has increased dramatically. Similar air-pollution rules should be imposed in other major cities.
Each of the following is an assumption made in the argument above EXCEPT:
(A) In most major cities, air-pollution problems are caused almost entirely by local industry.
(B) Air-pollution regulations on industry have a significant impact on the quality of the air.
(C) The air-pollution problems of other major cities are basically similar to those once suffered by London.
(D) An increase in the number of bird species in and around a city is desirable.
(E) The increased sightings of bird species in and around London reflect an actual increase in the number of species in the area.

I will vote for E

I think that the argument does not assume that because there are visibly present species, their overall number has also increased...

^ A ^

The argument does not assume that air-pollution problems are caused almost entirely by local industry. It says that the regulations imposed on local industry gave a positive result.

Between 'D' and 'A'

I will go for 'D'.

No where in the argument it is stated that 'an increase in number of bird species is desired in and around the city'. So this is an wrong assumption.

(A) - almost entirely still stands for a major contributor to the pollution and not the sole contributor.

Why not C?
Why is "an increase in the number of bird species in and around a city" desirable?

OA is A

'C' - is not an exception because...

The argument concludes by saying "Similar air-pollution rules should be imposed in other major cities" and not

"Similar air-pollution rules should be imposed in other major cities facing air pollution problems very similar to London"

Therefore we can say that the argument assumes that all other major cities, whether they are as big as London or not, these rules should be imposed.

Also,
(D) is not reflected any where in the argument. More birds in the city is not always desired, it can bring along problems of it's own.
May be in this case it is out of context and too general.

SO 'A' may be the right choice as the assumption is made that 'local industry' is the sole contributor for the air-pollution.
