Pollution levels in natural habitats have risen so much that many wild game animals have been dangerously contaminated. New legislation is needed to further regulate the processing and distribution of wild-animal meat.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens this argument?

A. Habitat destruction presents a greater threat to wild game populations than does hunting.
B. Game meat is lower in unhealthy hormones and antibiotics than meat from commercially raised animals.
C. Purchased game meat is the primary source of animal protein for a significant number of people.
D. The wild animal population has held fairly steady over the past decade.
E. Drafting appropriate legislation would be a lengthy and expensive process.

Official Explanation

The correct answer is (C). (C) strengthens the argument because it rules out a counter-argument. If few people depend upon purchasing game meat, then the regulations on the sale of game meat will only affect the food safety of a small population. However, if a larger population is affected by the safety of game meat, the argument for regulation is stronger.

Hope it helps
