It would cost Rosetown one million dollars to repair all of its roads. In the year after completion of those repairs, however, Rosetown would thereby avoid incurring three million dollars worth of damages, since currently Rosetown pays that amount annually in compensation for damage done to cars each year by its unrepaired roads.

Which of the following, if true, gives the strongest support to the argument above?

(A) Communities bordering on Rosetown also pay compensation for damage done to cars by their unrepaired roads.
(B) After any Rosetown road has been repaired, several years will elapse before that road begins to damage cars.
(C) Rosetown would need to raise additional taxes if it were to spend one million dollars in one year on road repairs.
(D) The degree of damage caused to Rosetownâ€™s roads by harsh weather can vary widely from year to year.
(E) Trucks cause much of the wear on Rosetownâ€™s roads, but owners of cars file almost all of the claims for compensation for damage caused by unrepaired roads.

Will go with B.

If the roads don't damage the cars for years to come, the money spent on settling damages will be saved.

very simple one (B). But in my hurry, I first read it as "In the year after completion of those repairs, however, Rosetown would incur three million dollars worth of damages, since currently Rosetown pays that amount annually in compensation for damage done to cars each year by its unrepaired roads. "
Was then trying to find which one supported it !!!!
Moral of the story : Patience....read the question carefully
