The red tramfish is an extremely rare species of fish that can be found only in some of the lake shores of the Silver Lakes region. A recent study has found that the oil extracted from the bones of the red tramfish can be used to develop an extremely effective medicine for arthritis. Since this finding has led to a sudden interest in this fish, the locals fear that the species will soon be extinct.

Which of the following, if true, supports the idea that the fear of the locals may not be misplaced?

A. It may not be possible to selectively catch red tramfish.

B. The cost of extracting oil from the bones of the red tramfish is higher than the cost of artificially developing the same oil.

C. The oil extracted from the bones of a single red tramfish is sufficient to produce more than four weeks of medication for an arthritis patient.

D. At the levels at which the red tramfish is now being caught, the rate of reproduction of the fish is less than the rate of fishing.

E. The proportion of population that is most affected by arthritis is expected to stay the same in the near future.
