One analyst predicts that Hong Kong can retain its capitalist ways after it ‎becomes part of mainland China in 1997 as long as a capitalist Hong Kong is ‎useful to China; that a capitalist Hong Kong will be useful to China as long as ‎Hong Kong is prosperous; and that Hong Kong will remain prosperous as long as ‎it retains its capitalist ways.‎
If the predictions above are correct, which of the following further predictions ‎can logically be derived from them?‎
‎(A) If Hong Kong fails to stay prosperous, it will no longer remain part of ‎mainland China.‎
‎(B) If Hong Kong retains its capitalist ways until 1997, it will be allowed to do so ‎afterward.‎
‎(C) If there is a world economic crisis after 1997, it will not adversely affect the ‎economy of Hong Kong.‎
‎(D) Hong Kong will be prosperous after 1997.‎
‎(E) The citizens of Hong Kong will have no restrictions placed on them by the ‎government of mainland China.‎
