The Wildlife Protection Committee's plan assumes that

(A) poachers do not kill rhinos that are worthless to them
does the job. negate it and the conclusion falls apart. Keep it.

(B) hornless rhinos pose less of a threat to humans, including poachers, than do rhinos that have horns
Irrelevant. Drop it.

(C) rhinos are the only animals poachers kill for their horns
Irrelevant. Drop it.

(D) hornless rhinos can successfully defend their young against nonhuman predators
Irrelevant. Drop it.

(E) imposing more stringent penalties on poachers will not decrease the number of rhinos killed by poachers
Conclusion is about cutting horns. this is out of scope. Drop it.

Premise - a rhinoceros that has no horn is worthless to poachers,
Conclusion - the Wildlife Protection Committee plans to protect selected rhinoceroses from being killed by poachers by cutting off the rhinos' horns.
Pre-thinking - worthless rhinos are not killed by poachers.

(A) poachers do not kill rhinos that are worthless to them - CORRECT. If poachers still kill worthless rhinos then there is no benefit of cutting off their horns.
(B) hornless rhinos pose less of a threat to humans, including poachers, than do rhinos that have horns - Irrelevant.
(C) rhinos are the only animals poachers kill for their horns - Irrelevant. Not concerned of other animals.
(D) hornless rhinos can successfully defend their young against nonhuman predators - Irrelevant.
(E) imposing more stringent penalties on poachers will not decrease the number of rhinos killed by poachers - Irrelevant.

Conclusion: protection of rhinos by cutting horn... in other words...protection =rhinos without horn
premise: no horn means worthless to poachers i.e no horn= worthless

GAP: Is worthless = protection??

This is what option A tries to say

Since a rhinoceros that has no horn is worthless to poachers, the Wildlife Protection Committee plans to protect selected rhinoceroses from being killed by poachers by cutting off the rhinos' horns.

Premise - a rhinoceros that has no horn is worthless to poachers,
Conclusion - the WPC plans to protect selected rhinoceroses from getting killed by poachers by cutting off the rhinos' horns.


The Wildlife Protection Committee's plan assumes that

(A) poachers do not kill rhinos that are worthless to them - CORRECT, if we negate this it will falsify our conclusion of protecting rhino from getting killed by poachers
(B) hornless rhinos pose less of a threat to humans, including poachers, than do rhinos that have horns - IRRELEVANT, posing more or less threat is not the context
(C) rhinos are the only animals poachers kill for their horns - OUT OF SCOPE, Other Animals are not relevant
(D) hornless rhinos can successfully defend their young against nonhuman predators - IRRELEVANT whether hornless rhinos can defend themselves or not is out of context
(E) imposing more stringent penalties on poachers will not decrease the number of rhinos killed by poachers - OUT OF SCOPE, imposing penalties on poachers is nowhere mentioned in the passage

Kindly give kudos if my explanation helped :-)
