Many corporations are resistant to environmental regulations because they feel that implementing the technology necessary to follow the regulations will result in increased costs and decreased profits. However, many of the new technologies developed to protect the environment result in increased efficiency and a substantial saving on energy costs that will outweigh any initial costs associated with installing the new technologies.

The argument as a whole is structured to lead to which of the following conclusions?

A. There is little economic justification for a corporation to resist implementing the technology necessary to uphold environmental regulations.
B. The economic costs of following environmental regulations are minor because the regulations are rarely enforced.
C. New technologies are more environmentally friendly than the older technologies used by most corporations.
D. Corporations that fail to follow environmental regulations will face fines and other sanctions.
E. There is no disadvantage to installing new technology in order to follow environmental regulations.

E. There is no disadvantage to installing new technology in order to follow environmental regulations.

Option A is the correct answer.
Option E talks about the "disadvantage" of the new technology and the given paragraph doesn't talk about the advantage and disadvantage of the new technology.
