Megatrash Co., the country's largest waste-disposal company, has been sued by environmental groups who have accused the firm of negligent handling of hazardous waste. The fines and legal fees that have resulted from the legal attacks against Megatrash have cost the company substantial amounts of money. Surprisingly, as successful lawsuits against the company have increased in number, the company has grown stronger and more profitable.

Which one of the following, if true, does the most to resolve the apparent paradox?

(A) Although waste-disposal firms merely handle but do not generate toxic waste. these firms have been held legally responsible for environmental damage caused by this waste.

(B) Megatrash has made substantial contributions to environmental causes. as have other large waste-disposal companies.

(C) Some of the judgments against Megatrash have legally barred it from entering the more profitable areas of the waste-management business.

(D) The example of Megatrash's legal entanglements has driven most of the company's competitors from the field and deterred potential rivals from entering it.

(E) In cases in which Megatrash has been acquitted of charges of negligence, the company has paid more in legal fees than it would have been likely to pay in fines.

Pre thinking: In order to resolve the paradox, we need to demonstrate that Megatrash Co. has started getting more business after the trial.
Out the options, only option D tells this. Since most of the players have gone away from the market, Megatrash Co. is getting all the business and is hence growing stronger.

(A) Although waste-disposal firms merely handle but do not generate toxic waste. these firms have been held legally responsible for environmental damage caused by this waste. Does not answer that despite lawsuits were against Megatrash , how company gained success in market

(B) Megatrash has made substantial contributions to environmental causes. as have other large waste-disposal companies. Does not answer that despite lawsuits were against Megatrash how company gained success in market

(C) Some of the judgments against Megatrash have legally barred it from entering the more profitable areas of the waste-management business.This option acts as a weakner

(D) The example of Megatrash's legal entanglements has driven most of the company's competitors from the field and deterred potential rivals from entering it.This option strengthens the argument , and hence Option D answers the question

(E) In cases in which Megatrash has been acquitted of charges of negligence, the company has paid more in legal fees than it would have been likely to pay in fines.The argument does not compare legal fees and fines paid by Megatrash. Out of scope
