Marta: There have been complaints about the lack of recreational areas in our city. Some people favor turning the old railway land into walking trails, but there may be more productive ways of using that land.

Arthur: But the old railway land is ideal for walking trails. Our citizens have gone too long with inadequate recreational areas; we should not dismiss this proposal for walking trails without further consideration.

Arthur’s criticism suggests that he interpreted Marta to be

(A) maintaining that converting the old railway land into walking trails would be an entirely unproductive use of that land

(B) favoring the development of recreational areas other than walking trails

(C) assuming that the complaints concerning a shortage of recreational areas are ill founded

(D) recommending that the proposal for converting the old railway land into walking trails should be promptly dismissed

(E) asserting that it may not be possible to convert the old railway land into adequate walking trails

+1 for D.

Stimulus : Marta subtly states that there may be more productive ways of using the land in discussion, and she did not make any innuendo about dismissing the proposal as a whole. Whereas Arthur misinterprets Marta's suggestion to that with dismissing the proposal at all.

(D) recommending that the proposal for converting the old railway land into walking trails should be promptly dismissed --> Correct.

Hence, D.
