The city's public transportastion system should be removed from the jurisdiction of the municipal government, which finds it poloitically impossible either to raise fares or to institute cist-saving reductions in service. If public transportation were handled by a private firm, profits would be vigorously pursued, thereby eliminating the necessity for covering operating costs with government funds.

The statements above best support the conclusion that

a) the private firms that would handle public transportation would have experience in the transportation industry
b) political considerations would not prevent firms from ensuring that revenues cover operating costs
c) private firms would receive government funding if it were needed ti cover operating costs
d) the public would approve the cost-cutting actions taken by the private firm
e) the municipal government would not be resigned to accumujlating merely enough income to cover costs

I chose B as well but somehow B looks more like an assumption rather that a conclusion.

The statements above best support the conclusion that

a) the private firms that would handle public transportation would have experience in the transportation industry -> OOS
b) political considerations would not prevent firms from ensuring that revenues cover operating costs -> this is true since we dont want to depend on govt to cover the operating costs which inturn raises profit.hence supports
c) private firms would receive government funding if it were needed ti cover operating costs ->does not affect ,conversely we dont need that help since its already that govt is unable to cover the costs
d) the public would approve the cost-cutting actions taken by the private firm -> this is irrelevant and no mention in argument about cost cutting
e) the municipal government would not be resigned to accumujlating merely enough income to cover costs -> irrelevant
