Hi,

Thanks for your early response, But could you please help me out here as i'm not able to understand this statement "What if all-terrain vehicles enter the desert from some routes other than current routes? Would the plan be successful then?"

As our conclusion is to halt the decline of tortoise population by restriction the vehicles through current route.Then assumption shouldn't be linking these two statement. instead of stating about other route .

Or it is linked in this way like the route is irrelevant here ,only thing we should consider here is the vehicle should not be entering as vehicle has caused a decline .


Could you help me explaining how does it linked.

Thanks :)

I agree with the points made by Nitinaka. The stem states that the plan will be achieved by blocking current access routes, doesn't it mean we should not even worry about any other access to the desert?

Need explanation.
Thanks!

This is a tricky question in which a word can make a difference.

B) Whether Targland is able to enforce the regulations with respect to all-terrain vehicle entry at points other than the current access routes ( Notice the words Current Access routes)

Yes : - If it can enforce regulations on other routes as well then it is possible that measures are adequate. It helps in official prediction.

No :- It destroys official prediction. If there are other access routes as well then banning one route won't help. People can go from other routes as well.

D) Question stem says that its difficult to collect the tortoises without a vehicle. But in this option it says people encouter tortoises. May be the tortoise are so heavy that people can see them but they can't carry them. So it doesn't affect the prediction. (Encounter is different from collection).

+1 for B. this option only provides a valid evaluating aspect neglecting which would result in not achieving the target.

Answer should be B.
Closing only one access point will not work if other access points are open for vehicles.

Question understanding - Tortoises population has declined for couple of reasons. main step taken for protection is block vehicle entry in desert area. only pedestrians are allowed. and pedestrians can not collect tortoises without vehicle.

(A) Whether possessing the tortoises as pets remains legally permissible in Targland. --- this is not affecting the argument in any way possible. irrelevant

(B) Whether Targland is able to enforce the regulations with respect to all-terrain vehicle entry at points other than the current access routes. --- is response to this is yes and multiple access point are there to access the desert, then officials plan for protection of tortoises is not full proof. on the other hand if answer is no then well and good. Correct answer.

(C) Whether the Red Dessert Tortoises are most active during the day or at night ---- again irrelevant as this option is not affecting argument in either ways.

(D) Whether people who travel on foot in the Red Desert often encounter the tortoises --- this is a beautiful trap answer. and if by any chance you missed the last line of the stem then one is going to get caught. however if can can not carry tortoises without vehicle, then this choice has no effect on the plan .

(E) Whether the Targland authorities held public hearings before restricting entry by vehicle inot the Red Desert. --- irrelevant

I understood why it's B as access point is a bigger evaluating point

Binggm14 - I thought exactly the same. but then I thought, how many people will go there and destroy things by stepping on them. more so ever accidentally or intentionally. When you compare this way you will find that chances are really less then they are in B.

Remember, Gmat ask you to choose best answer.
