Municipal legislator: The mayor proposes that the
city accept a lighting company's gift of several
high-tech streetlights. Surely there would be no
problem in accepting these despite some people's
fear that the company wants to influence the city's
decision regarding park lighting contracts. The
only ulterior motive I can find is the company's
desire to have its products seen by mayors who
will visit the city for an upcoming convention. In
any case, favoritism in city contracts is prevented
by our competitive-bidding procedure.

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the
main conclusion of the municipal legislator's argument?

(A) Some people's fear that the company wants to
influence the city's decision regarding park
lighting conareacts is unfounded.

(B) The mayor's proposal to accept the gift
of streetlights should not be considered
problematic.

(C) It is not appropriate that any company should
have the unique opportunity to display its
products to mayors attending the upcoming
convention.

(D) The city ' s competitive-bidding procedure
prevents favoritism in the dispensing of city
contracts.

(E) The lighting company's desire to display
its products to visiting mayors is the real
the motivation behind the suggested gift of
streetlights.
