Since the last few years, bird watching has become increasingly popular as a hobby in Ohio. The National Parks in Ohio have also been conducting bird watch programs for the past decade. Certainly, the increased interest in bird watching among the Ohio residents is because of the bird watch programs conducted by Ohio State National Parks.

Each of the following, if true, provides some support for the historians’ account described above EXCEPT:


A. Ohio State has widely publicized the Bird Watch programs conducted by the National Parks

B. Ohio state is the house of many exotic and beautiful birds.

C. The bird watch programs are being conducted regularly by most of the National Parks in Ohio.

D. As part of the Bird Watch programs, the National Parks also provide good materials and help the bird watchers identify the birds.

E. Before the National Parks started conducting Bird watch programs, not many people in the state of Ohio were interested in bird watching

This is an EXCEPT question & we need to find the one option which does not support that increased interest in bird watching among the Ohio residents is because of the bird watch programs conducted so any option that either weakens or is neutral to the claim is correct option.

Let's see all options.

A. Ohio State has widely publicized the Bird Watch programs conducted by the National Parks Supports claim : Bird watching programs were publicized

B. Ohio state is the house of many exotic and beautiful birds. Correct answer It indirectly supports : But Does not form a link between bird watching programs & increase in bird watching as a hobby.

C. The bird watch programs are being conducted regularly by most of the National Parks in Ohio.Supports claim

D. As part of the Bird Watch programs, the National Parks also provide good materials and help the bird watchers identify the birds. Supports claim

E. Before the National Parks started conducting Bird watch programs, not many people in the state of Ohio were interested in bird watching Supports claim

Hence Option (B) is our choice.

Strengthens to a certain extent.

B. Ohio state is the house of many exotic and beautiful birds.
Correct. Shows no support.

C. The bird watch programs are being conducted regularly by most of the National Parks in Ohio.
Provides support to the Conclusion.

D. As part of the Bird Watch programs, the National Parks also provide good materials and help the bird watchers identify the birds.
Provides support to the Conclusion. Encouraging the residents.

E. Before the National Parks started conducting Bird watch programs, not many people in the state of Ohio were interested in bird watching.
Indirectly states that the increased interest is beause of the the Bird Watch programs conducted by National Parks.


Answer Choice B is the only option that does not strengthen the Conclusion.

IMO B is correct answer because it may be possible many other states are also having exotic birds or beautiful birds ,this does not explain why OHIO national parks should be given credit to the increase in interest among the people.
