The recent rise of low-cost airlines in Country Y has led to great increases in the number of air travelers and flights. However, a “hidden cost” of flying and certain other forms of travel is the significant amount of air pollution, which contributes to global warming. To make people pay these hidden costs-and in the process discourage the explosive growth in flying-the government of Country Y plans to impose fees on all air travel. There is a problem, however, in that many residents of Country Y would then use automobile transportation instead, without paying the hidden costs of the resulting air pollution.

Which of the following additions to the government's plan would be likely to help most in overcoming the problem referred to in the final sentence above?

(A) Restricting the number of daily flights permitted in Country Y

(B) Using the fees imposed on air travel to educate the public about the effects of air pollution on global warming

(C) Setting clear, specific recommendations for the long-term reduction in exhaust emissions by automobile transportation in the country

(D) Asking airplane manufacturers to study the possibility of creating airplanes that produce less air pollution

(E) Imposing substantial fees on all forms of motorized transportation, in proportion to the amount of pollution caused by each form

Question Code : VCR007798

Author is saying more flights mean more pollution, hence more hidden cost. Then he says problem is if we impose such costs on people, they will move to other forms of transportation. We need to provide some solution to resolve this problem or prevent people to move to other forms.

(A) Restricting the number of daily flights permitted in Country Y --> That is not the goal. Our goal to prevent people to switch their form of transportation.

(B) Using the fees imposed on air travel to educate the public about the effects of air pollution on global warming --> Again, if they are not wiling to pay this fee, how can we use that fee?

(C) Setting clear, specific recommendations for the long-term reduction in exhaust emissions by automobile transportation in the country --> People are not bothered about this. They can still switch.

(D) Asking airplane manufacturers to study the possibility of creating airplanes that produce less air pollution --> Future? Do you think people will pay more now and donot switch?

(E) Imposing substantial fees on all forms of motorized transportation, in proportion to the amount of pollution caused by each form --> Okay, so now they have to pay more on everything, not just flights. hence, chances are they will not switch.
