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.

A) In most major cities, air-pollution problems are caused almost entirely by local industry -'Strict air-pollution regulations on 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 - If air pollution rules are imposed in other major cities then the air pollution problems should be similar to those of London
(D) An increase in the number of bird species in and around a city is desirable - Air pollution measures in London increased the number of bird species. Air pollution rules to be imposed in other major cities is desire to increase the number of bird species.
(E) The increased sightings of bird species in and around London reflect an actual increase in the number of species in the area - The increased sightings of bird species should be because of the pollution measures but should not be because of any other reason

So answer is "B"

IMO E

B seems close..but better quality air can be an assumption for more birds visiting.

Use negation test, in case quality of air did not improve, then there is no reason for the increased number of birds sighted.

I would go with A. "Almost entirely on local industry" seems to strong a wording to be an assumption. What is the OA?
