someone explain question number 3 please !
thanx in advance ;)



Hi Anshuman0902,

3. It can be inferred from the passage that the author believes that those in favor of stiffening the restrictions on gene transplant research should logically also

(A) encourage experiments with any plasmids except those bearing genes for antibiotic resistance
(B) question the addition of anti-infective drugs to livestock feeds
(C) resist the use of penicillin and tetracyclines to kill microorganisms
(D) agree to the development of meatier livestock through the use of antibiotics
(E) favor congressional debate and discussion of all science and health issues


Explanation: can be inferred from the lines: "Yet, while congressional debate rages over whether or not to toughen these restrictions on scientists in their laboratories, little congressional attention has been focused on an ill-advised agricultural practice that produces known deleterious effects.".

The highlighted lines imply that though a lot of focus is on toughening the restrictions on scientists in their labs, if should also shift towards the ill-advised agricultural practice that produces known deleterious effects. Thus the correct answer is B.


Hope This Helps.
Thanks.

Hello yahya729

E is your answer because you probably didn't read the answer option E and the related text from the passage carefully. The related text from the passage is:

Plasmids are also one of the two kinds of vehicles (the other being viruses) that molecular biologists depend on when performing gene transplant experiments.

The plasmids are vehicles on which molecular biologists depend when performing gene transplant experiments. On the other hand, (E) says Plasmids themselves are Vehicles for performing gene transplant experiments. So there is a huge difference between the answer option E and the related text from the passage. That is why E is wrong.
