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?

I believe it is B because that is the only option that talks about people living elsewhere while the remaining options take into consideration the locals and the wilderness.

2 factors to keep in mind --> jobs for locals and impact on wilderness. Option B does not impact any of these. So, option B sounds the correct answer.
