People living in the undeveloped wilderness area want jobs, and commercial development of the area will create jobs. But if the new commercial development plan is carried out, the wilderness will suffer. Thus the board considering the areaâ€™s future must choose between the preservation of the wilderness and the wishes of the local people.
The answer to which of the following questions would be LEAST relevant to evaluating whether the board indeed faces the choice the author says it faces?

(A) Could commercial development be carried out under an alternative plan without damaging the wilderness?
(B) Would commercial development of the wilderness area significantly benefit people living elsewhere?
(C) Would the jobs created by the new development plan be filled by the local people?
(D) Do local people support or oppose commercial development of the wilderness area?
(E) Can job be provided without commercial development of the wilderness area?

Choose B

(A) Needed to evaluate the scenario. If true then the board does not have to choose one over another.

(B) Least relevant. The choice is made between providing job opportunities for the locals vs preserving wilderness who cares about outsiders?

(C) Neede. If the jobs created by development cannot be filled by the local people then you have not solved the problem at all.

(D) Needed. The jobs are created for the local people and it is in their habitat. If they are against it then the board needs to work things out with the locals.

(E) Needed. very similar to A.

B. This type of question can be answered by answering the the questions in the answer alternatives. all other alternatives, except B, are relavant to the statement mentioned in the question stem. the answers to these 4 alternatives are relavant to the discussion of wilderness and job in that area. but the answer to the question B is least relavant to the discussion.
