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 area’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?

(B) Would commercial development of the wilderness area significantly benefit people living elsewhere?

The benefit of people living elsewhere is LEAST relevant to evaluating whether the board indeed faces the choice the author says it faces !

what's the OA ?

Same here...."B" since it neither weakens nor strengthens the argument.

B for me.

Whether people living elsewhere will significantly benefit from the commercial development or not is least relevant.
